Sugata Mitra (Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Newcastle, England) has launched a $1m experiment to find out if learning can happen without teachers. His 'schools in the cloud' will allow groups of children to teach themselves using the internet.
Some claim that true learning cannot happen without teachers, and that there will always be a place for face-to-face teaching. But concepts such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are attracting a growing level of support. So what are the threats, and what are the opportunities?
Our parent organisation, Cambridge Assessment, believes that a sensible debate is needed on the future for face-to-face teaching and learning. The event will bring together a panel of experts (including Professor Mitra and Lord David Puttnam CBE FRSA) to debate the ways in which technology could – and should – transform the fundamentals of education and assessment.
The event will take place from 10:00 – 13:00 (UK time) on Tuesday 11 February 2014 at the British Library Conference Centre in London.
