The children of gosavi vasti v2

195

Published on

An overview of the development of children over a few months in a 'stand alone' SOLE [Self Organized Learning Environment]. This is in a community where illiteracy is the norm, children study in schools that are not supportive, English is not their medium of instruction and nor are there "grannies" from the Granny Cloud. This what they can accomplish with 2 computers and intermittent internet.
