Great blog. As part of a class project at my university I am trying to create a business using this microfranchising model. Hope to use you as a resource when time arises!
Very cool. Have you heard about follow-up or social impact on this? Seems like a great idea.Have you seen this?http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_the_child_driven_education.htmlIt is another technology-driven project in India that my friend shared with me. Looks pretty cool.And YAY! I'm finally getting around to reading your blog. I assume you worked with Jason Fairborne?
Thanks Deme and Sarah for coming by! Thanks for the link Sarah, I love the philosophy behind the Hole-in-the-Wall experiments. I hadn't heard of his recent developments with the "granny cloud", I love it! His research truly has transformational implications for education. The next question is who is going to build out these models and take them to scale? That is an opportunity for a social entrepreneur...
