TED Prize Winner Returns to Thinking Digital


Professor Sugata Mitra is returning to Thinking Digital in 2013. Since he last spoke at Thinking Digital 2012, Sugata has had a truly magical year as he was awarded the very first $1m TED Prize at the 2013 TED Conference in Long Beach, California. His TED Prize “wish” is to create a “School in the Cloud” so we look forward to hearing about this and other highlights.

The BBC have also confirmed that they will be running a Connected Studio workshop and ‘perceptive media‘ tech demo on Wednesday lunchtime.
