Must Watch TED Talk- Sugata Mitra: The child-driven education

If you are remotely interested in: education, the third world, economic disparity, human rights, children, the brain, social development, the origins of society, problem solving, computers or anything at all you have to watch this TED talk.

Not just because Sugata Mitra is adorable, but because his experiments in giving children unguided and uninstructed access to the internet will blow your mind.

BOOM. Mind blown. You should also watch it because he's adorable.

"Education scientist Sugata Mitra tackles one of the greatest problems of education -- the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most. In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching."
