TED is a speakers’ contest of simple rules: everyone can talk about whatever they want to. Each participant chooses the topic of his or her performance and then gives a 20-minute speech. The winner of 2013 TED talk was Sugata Mitra, a British scientist examining educational processes. In his 20-minute talk he explained the origins of the contemporary educational system and presented his own vision of education in the future.

We have started to wonder how to get involved in the project Sugata mentions. We do realise that no one, not even a minister, could do this instead of us. The speaker, as a good teacher following the philosophy of IBO, gave us a task to complete and is awaiting our answer. Inspiring, isn’t it? This is the way your child is going to learn at Open Future International School – a teacher presents an issue to be solved and students independently engage themselves into finding a solution.
