Are schools obsolete?

Build a school in the cloud, Sugata Mitra’s TEDTalk, is fascinating. I knew about schools coming out of the industrial revolution thanks to Seth Godin’s Stop Stealing Dreams, but the connection with the Empire hadn’t occurred to me.

The ‘Hole in the wall’ experiment also reminded me of this fantastic story.
