Director Jerry Rothwell joined us for our opening night screening of The School in the Cloud. The post-screening discussion was hosted by DocHouse's Jenny Horwell.
TED-Prize winner Sugata Mitra is a pioneer. Specialising in the education of children in underprivileged areas around the world, in places where schools are sparse, his award-winning approach lets children teach themselves a curriculum through computer-based learning. In this latest film from director Jerry Rothwell, we follow Mitra as he explores the possibilities of his theories; meets the teachers and students inspired by his method; and finally opens the ‘School in the Cloud‘ classroom in the rural village of Korakati, India.
