Latha commented on The peer-to-peer, self-guided learning platform.

This is brilliant. My concept suggested something similar but your platform operationalizes it very well. My twelve year old son has never been to formal school and is an auto-didact. He uses Khan Academy and Coursera extensively for contact. I would be curious to know how your platform is different. I also second the idea of intergenerational learning. One of the challenges with migration, especially refugee migration is the loss of cultural resources. I think intergenerational involvement in learning would go a long way in sharing and preservation of cultural resources within these communities.


Latha commented on Learning is easier when you're nourished.

This is excellent contribution. I agree that food is so basic and powerful. In South India, many children came to school, stayed, and graduated because of a mid-day meal scheme. Further sharing food between teachers and students will build a bonding experience. Food is such a powerful vehicle for communication.

Thanks for the feedback. How do you think we can make this happen in a refugee camp?
