In 1999, Dr. Sugatra Mitra placed a computer into a hole in the wall of an urban slum in New Delhi India and watched with a hidden camera to see how children of the slum interacted with this foreign device. His "Hole in the Wall" project, along with subsequent studies, demonstrates that even in the absence of direct input from a teacher, an environment that stimulates curiosity can cause learning through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.
