School in the Cloud

Get it Now ›
Anyone can create a Self Organized Learning Environment (SOLE). Spark curiosity in children by asking them to explore a big question using the Internet and their ability to work together. Learning happens spontaneously in these purposefully chaotic environments.
Start your own SOLE and help us design the future of learning

The aim of School in the Cloud is to spark creativity, curiosity and wonder in children and inspire them to take control of their own learning.

Sugata Mitra has conducted many experiments since 1999 that have revealed that groups of children can learn almost anything by themselves given internet access and the ability to work as a community.

We call spaces that make this possible Self Organized Learning Environments (SOLEs).

SOLEs can be created by educators, parents or communities, and can refer to any place where children are encouraged to work together to answer big questions using the internet. These places are fuelled by self-discovery, sharing and spontaneity.
