The Adventures of a Cloud Granny


Former secondary school teacher and language instructor from the village of Diggle, England, Jackie Barrow tells of her adventure joining TED Prize winner, Sugata Mitra’s School in the Cloud project, as one of the original Cloud Grannies. As a Cloud Granny, she talks, reads, sings, tells stories, and develops connections, virtually, via Skype, with groups of children in India, to improve their English skills, provide a window to the world using technology, and importantly, to increase their awareness about their own success through continued learning.
