Language in Which You Will Present: English
Target Audience(s): People interested in exploring how the granny cloud works and perhaps becoming one of the SOLE Grannies
Short Session Description (one line): Across the world - Connecting ‘Grannies’ and children
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): The Granny Cloud is a key component of Sugata Mitra’s Self Organized Learning Environments idea and will continue to be so in its new ‘avatar’ - The School in the Cloud’. Originally conceived to enable children from disadvantaged, non-English speaking backgrounds, in and out of school environments, to learn English, it soon became apparent that it held the potential for much more. Grannies have engaged children in conversation, helped them become confident, capable of questioning the world around and helped them begin to fulfill their dreams. In the School in the Cloud, Grannies will take this role still further and conduct SOLE sessions via internet connections. The session will explore the challenges as well as the sense of fulfillment that comes from being part of the ‘Granny Cloud’.
