Daniel commented on School in the Cloud: Sugata Mitra's 'Granny Cloud'

Granny Cloud is brilliant and there's tremendous potential in applying reverse mentoring to the model - using School in the Cloud for reverse mentoring


Daniel commented on Your Grandma is Banksy

I recently saw an outdoor painting area for kids where they could paint on different structures. It would be interesting to bring younger and older generations into a similar environment.

I agree Lina - and bringing a usergen e-commerce site like Etsy into the picture makes it really exciting. The mentor relationship can benefit from the millions of dollars Etsy has already invested in creating a top-quality site to showcase the products. The youth could mentor the adult on how to use Etsy as well - thus empowering them to expand their offering. UserGen e-commerce meets micro-finance meets reverse mentoring.
