School’s out forever

Anyone who’s seen a baby transfixed before a smartphone or tablet is all too aware of children’s fascination with glowing screens – not to mention modern communication devices’ ability to teach its users how to operate them. This simple fact forms the basis of The School in the Cloud, an international project initiated by Indian professor Sugata Mitra. In this inspiring and thought-provoking documentary we are introduced to his plans for using technology to revolutionize the way children are taught in schools and bring first class education to those who need it the most.
