talks about the future of learning and what it is, he goes on to mention that our ability to learn new things is so imperative that it impacts our networking life, our ability to understand new information is incredible  we will learn anything if given a small instruction.

Mitra later goes on to tell his audience about Indian school children learning about an object they have never seen , he leaves them on their own to investigate what this computer object is until later on he comes back to discover they are teaching each other how to browse the internet. he later goes on to tell about his other encounters with children who have never seen a computer his key word in all this is ‘encouragment’ saluting the children when they have done something correct, learning how they will react to positive reinforcement.
