Professor Mitra's hole in the wall research demonstrates the realization of how the revolution will influence the increasingly irrelevant institutions of education. His research demonstrates that education can happen on its own with out oversight and through self organization, even among young children. The implications of his conclusions are profound and set forth great hope that the ubiquity of information systems and personal computers will do more for those who have been unable to be educated in the past. The notion of self organization is a core concept that will increasingly impact many challenges because relying on second and third wave institutional and organizational approaches simply do not work as well.
