Another great TED Talk

This TED Talk, given by Sugata Mitra, talks about his Hole in the Wall project. Young kids in this project figured out how to use a PC on their own -- and then taught other kids. He asks, what else can children teach themselves?
Sugata Mitra's "Hole in the Wall" experiments have shown that, in the absence of supervision or formal teaching, children can teach themselves and each other, if they're motivated by curiosity and peer interest.

Thanks to Sharon Wasyluk at St. Joseph Secondary for this one.
