The platform was launched to help accelerate this research by helping educators — teachers, parent or community leaders — to run their own SOLEs (self organised learning environment) and to contribute to the global experiment by sharing their experiences.
Taking its lead from Sugata Mitra’s principles of self organisation, the Granny Cloud has developed many different roles within the group. It offers mutual support, mentors individual children, provides technical support, gathers data for research, explores fund-raising opportunities, promotes the project through the media and helps with the recruitment of new Grannies.
London Speaker Bureau consultant Wendy Morris is supporting the project, having become a Granny herself.
