Sugata Mitra Winner of 2013 TED Talks

I think Mr. Mitra offers some important ideas in education and the way it is conceived and taught, the way school is actually de-schooling our children. It’s about time education gets a needed revamp and teachers and parents get a little more creative, think more of the child’s interest than the interest of ramming down facts and figures.  Check out this link – there are lots of great information as well as past winners and their topics for you to listen to if you like.  Enjoy

BTW with his winnings comes a nice $1 million prize money. Not a bad pay day.
