This paper describes the effect that assistive technologies, including the Internet, have on pedagogy. It reports the results of experiments with SOLEs within primary education and describes their possible effects on primary education in remote areas. Within this article, Sugata Mitra discusses the self-organising system as a technical term in mathematics and physics and describes how this concept can be applied to the self-organised learning amongst children. Finally, this article looks to the future – proposing a change in the examination system that may incorporate self-organised learning and the internet into our school systems.
