The Child-driven Education
Take some minutes to watch this INSPIRING VIDEO.

Quotations from the video to think about:
  • "Children will learn to do what they want to learn to do."
  • "A teacher who can be replaced by a machine, should be."
  • "If children have interest then education happens."
  • "There was photographic recall inside the children and I suspect it's because they were discussing with each other."
  • "Education is a self-organizing system, where learning is an emergent phenomenom."
(a self-organizing system is one where the system structure appears without explicit intervention from outside the system)
