Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

This Friday, we welcome TED prize winner Dr Sugata Mitra to Newcastle HQ.  Mitra’s interest and work around Self Organised Learning Systems makes for an insightful session, as Newcastle University’s Professor of Educational Technology will lead a discussion on assessment in schools following the strikes that took place earlier this week.

Onstage at TED 2013, Mitra made his bold TED Prize wish: Help me design the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can explore and learn from each other — using resources and mentoring from the cloud. Orange Bus are honoured that Sugata Mitra is giving his time to speak to Team OB.
