Sun CEO believes the world is his classroom

Filed under: Learning — Subbaraman Iyer @ 4:24 pm

A couple of years back when Scott Mcnealy (the former CEO of Sun) was in Singapore, he talked about the world wide classroom initiative and his vision of creating a whole new paradigm. He talked about is as passionately as he does about technology and his arch enemies in the technology area — Microsoft.

Now he has come out with a very interesting model.

What I find it appealing is the co-operative approach that he has adopted which lends itself to constant change, making  it adaptable, and oriented towards the learning approach rather than the staid educational approach.

I am a strong believer in the philosophy of the open source world and the collaborative model. Hence this resonates with me strongly.

Further, I am more encouraged by the fact that there has been a lot of visitors from India. Given that there are many issues confronting the Indian educational system, I hope there will be increased activity,  contribution and participation from India.
