<i>Like Whirlwinds</i> will look at the development of 2013 TED Prize winner Sugata Mitra's latest and most ambitious project, "A School in the Cloud." The school is a learning lab in India that taps into children's innate curiosity and instinct to teach each other. Told from the perspectives of impoverished Indian children who speak no English and have little-to-no access to education, a retired school teacher in the UK who teaches and mentors these young people via the internet, and low-income students in Gateshead, England, who represent a new front in Mitra's visionary educational experiment, Rothwell's film asked the question: is our current model for educating children an obsolete remnant of a bygone era?
