This webinar is hosted in English

Who is the teacher? Active learning is about learning by teaching. But is that possible? Can students learn on their own without a formal teacher?

In 1999, Sugata Mitra hole in the wall experiment proved that teaching is indeed a way to learn. He placed a PC with a high speed Internet connection in the hole in the wall in the slums of Delhi. He added a hidden camera in the area so he could document what was happening. The children were able to learn without a teacher. How did that happen?
