Sugata Mitra’s new experiments in self-teaching

Quote: A self-organizing system is one where the system structure appears without explicit intervention from the outside system.
Although I love what he says I’m not agreeing with that quote. Not all self-organizing systems are self-created. Not even in this video. Sugata did create the environment in which these things happen.

Like he says himself: it only happens when you have multiple children at computers.

Rules from his finetuning:

– groups of four
– own groups of four
– each group of four can use one computer
– You can exchange groups
– You can go to another group, peer over their sholder, come back to your own group and claim it as your own work

He also says it when he says he is building Sole’s (Self-organizing learning environments)
Let’s say that again: he is building self-organizing (LE).
yep you can create environments where self-organisation takes place.  It’s not rocked science, it still has to be done. That is what I (and my collegue coaches) are doing in the agile world.
