Jerry Rothwell's latest documentary 'The School in the Cloud' follows TED prize-winner and Professor of Education, Sugata Mitra, who set up classrooms of computers in the remote village of Korakati, India and George Stephenson High School in North Tyneside.

Mitra's classrooms asked its students big questions, and invited them to work in groups to find their own answers using the internet. With resources such as Skype, and the variety of educators supporting them, the students were provided with freedom to explore their curiosity.

The 'School in the Cloud' poses the question "what kind of education do children need in the networked world?"

This screening will show 'The School in the Cloud' and will be followed by a Q&A discussion with the producer, Daniel Demissie., the director, Jerry Rothwell and the BCS Deputy President, Michael Grant FBCS.
