School in the Cloud meets Pencils of Promise - Sugata Mitra vs Adam Braun

Fascinating times ahead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRE1eBptVy8


To see Sugata Mitra and Adam Braun come together can only result in something extraordinary. It was just a couple of months ago that I heard about Adam Braun and immediately had to read the book The Promise of a Pencil. It was also precisely a couple of months ago I had planned to meet with Sugata Mitra in the Oppi Festival (not knowing yet that he was to be present only through Skype). Few are the times when you find yourself in the right place at the right time. This is like one of those, physically not so much, but nevertheless ever so much mentally.
