SOLE? It's like learning a new language

What is SOLE? It is a  Self-Organized Learning Environment, (SOLE) that can exist anywhere there is a computer, Internet connection, and willing learners.

SOLE is increasingly being used in many different settings, including some where it might not seem a natural fit, such as Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).   
Traditionally an area which relies on individual learning or teacher-led in a classroom.... Prof Sugata Mitra caused a bit of a stir when he gave a keynote speech about learning needing to be far more self-organised at an IATEFL conference. 
...[E]arly findings suggest that while SOLE is not suitable for teaching higher level grammar, it can be effective in terms of language fluency and confidence.... Further research is now being planned between SOLE Central and International House.
