So here are a couple of images from SOLEs.
I've tried incredible, incredible questions -- "When did the world begin? How will it end?" — to nine-year-olds.
This one is about what happens to the air we breathe.
This is done by children without the help of any teacher.
The teacher only raises the question, and then stands back and admires the answer.
So what's my wish? My wish is that we design the future of learning.
We don't want to be spare parts for a great human computer, do we?
So we need to design a future for learning.
And I've got to -- hang on, I've got to get this wording exactly right, because, you know, it's very important.
My wish is to help design a future of learning by supporting children all over the world to tap into their wonder and their ability to work together.
Help me build this school. It will be called the School in the Cloud.
It will be a school where children go on these intellectual adventures driven by the big questions which their mediators put in.
The way I want to do this is to build a facility where I can study this.
It's a facility which is practically unmanned.
There's only one granny who manages health and safety. The rest of it's from the cloud.
The lights are turned on and off by the cloud, etc., etc., everything's done from the cloud.
But I want you for another purpose.
You can do Self-Organized Learning Environments at home, in the school, outside of school, in clubs.
It's very easy to do. There's a great document produced by TED which tells you how to do it.
If you would please, please do it across all five continents and send me the data,
then I'll put it all together, move it into the School of Clouds, and create the future of learning. That's my wish.
And just one last thing. I'll take you to the top of the Himalayas.
At 12,000 feet, where the air is thin, I once built two Hole in the Wall computers, and the children flocked there.
And there was this little girl who was following me around.
And I said to her, "You know, I want to give a computer to everybody, every child.
I don't know, what should I do?" And I was trying to take a picture of her you know quietly.
She suddenly raised her hand like this, and said to me, "Get on with it."
I think it was good advice. I'll follow her advice.
I'll stop talking. Thank you. Thank you very much.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Wow.
