Conference sneak preview

Professor Sugata Mitra to deliver keynote speech at eLearning Africa 2011

Sugata Mitra is currently Professor of Educational Technology at Newcastle University. Considered a pioneer in his field, Professor Mitra is best known for his “Hole In The Wall” experiment, whereby he studied the potential of minimally invasive education by placing an Internet-enabled PC in the wall of an Indian slum, leaving it there for anyone to use. In this interview, Professor Mitra helps us to understand what technology can offer some of the most marginalised members of society. Drawing on examples from his own research, Professor Mitra goes on to offer practical advice to developers and eLearning professionals, highlighting some of the key shifts in the landscape of technology and learning.
