This TED Talk lesson is intended to be used with Sugata Mitra's talk, Build a School in a Cloud.
This TED video and worksheet can be completed in one class period. (I often follow-up with a class discussion the following day.)
This video and worksheet are appropriate for most high school-level Social Studies and English classes.
TED lessons can be used as mini-lessons or to supplement a prepared unit. I often assign TED lessons as make-up work or extra credit. TED Talks also make great lesson plans on "sub days."
Onstage at TED2013, Sugata Mitra makes his bold TED Prize wish: Help me design the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can explore and learn from each other — using resources and mentoring from the cloud.
