Connecting through music…
Eli in Australia:
I am really enjoying talking to the students at Shiragon high school over skype. I think its really fun that we get to talk to kids in a whole different country. I was amazed at how well they spoke English. I like to ask and answer questions and love sharing our cultures and beliefs. I love sharing common interests and sharing music as well. My favourite thing is that I am doing something new and exciting to me.
Attar, computer teacher at Shiragon (he became the computer whiz at school thanks to Sugata Mitra’s Hole in the Wall and the interest he showed in it that Sugata reinforced.):
Its a wonderful, incomparable world. At one click the new generation is doing away with the barriers between nations with the help of new technology. Older people have more limited attitudes, that youngsters don’t even have an idea of [the barriers]. Best wishes to Mitra Sir that the SOLEs are coming into play through his vision.
