Reinventing education for the 21st century, Let kids study what they want and have full access to the internet for research

You may have noticed this making the latest front cover of the popular “Wired” tech innovation magazine, but this is worth passing on because of the inclusion of Sugata Mitra’s (winner of TED Talks annual award) Ted videos.
I still suspect he may be overstating the case, principally because he uses the same success examples over a long time period, and because attempts at replication by the One Child One Computer foundation found that kids also learned really novel ways to crash the computers…(but it took him a long time to get published because lots of people thought the same way, till he had lots of proof..) But if not a panacea, it certainly points in a rich direction…..
