SOLES disrupt education generating new ways to learn and thrive through the collaborate use if technology. It enables students at locations without access to many teachers to appropriate learning dynamics suited for the challenges of this era.  

Colombia is the second-most populated country in South America, and thanks to a new government initiative, hundreds of thousands of its children could soon find themselves exposed to self-organised learning environments (SOLEs). Last year, Colombia began a pilot program in 10 libraries and 10 kiosks around the country with help from the Ministry of Information Technologies and Communications. The program, called SOLE Colombia, is aSOLE Central research partner which gave children and adults the opportunity to participate in SOLEs and learn how to answer Big Questions.
