 SOLE Toolkit – self organized learning environment Learning for changeTo prepare for the realities of the future workplace and the rapidly changing technological  landscape, it is critical for educators to invite kids to get good at asking big questions that lead  them on intellectual journeys to pursue answers, rather than only memorizing facts.
After a series of experiments revealed that groups of children can learn almost anything by  themselves, researcher Sugata Mitra began his pursuit to inspire children all over the world to get curious and work together. In 1999, Sugata and his colleagues dug a hole in a wall bordering a  slum in New Delhi, installed an Internet-connected PC, and left it there (with a hidden camera).  Soon, they saw kids from the slum playing with the computer, learning English and searching  through a wide variety of websites on science and other topics, and then teaching each other.
