Peer-to-Peer Learning Disrupting Poverty

April 6, 2011 · Posted in abundance, prediction · Comment 

I’ve been promoting peer-to-peer technology and education for 15 years. USA is ignoring the advice, India is doing it and succeeding.

Michigan is complaining that it can’t cut spending below $7316 per student per year for 12 years but India is able to train engineers in 6 months for nearly free and teenager Babar Ali is providing elementary education for free using the peer-to-peer model.

More importantly the people actually getting it done are avoiding the top-down hierarchies of established charities and government. They are doing it themselves and helping others to also do it themselves.
