About this talk:

We are joined by the 2013 TEDPrize winner, Professor Sugata Mitra from Newcastle University. He addresses one of the greatest problems faced by education in today’s day and age; that the best teachers and schools don’t exist where they're needed most.

As Professor Mitra shares his internet-based experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he may revolutionize how you think about teaching.
