Sugata Mitra is one of the most original voices in education today. His unique research with children and technology around the world casts a fascinating light on the core dynamics of learning—and teaching. Children love to learn; they don’t all do well in education. Why not? In school they’re usually obliged to compete with each other; what if they collaborate instead? They’re typically taught by age; what happens when they’re not? What if there’s no teacher at all? And what does all of this mean for the future of education in an increasingly connected and febrile world? A bold, provocative, and important book for anyone with a serious interest in learning, technology, and schools.

—Sir Ken Robinson, PhD, Educator and New York Times Best-Selling Author
