TED Radio Hour: Unstoppable Learning

From TED Radio Hour, 4:06 pm on 18 May 2014

Our minds and bodies constantly master lessons from our surroundings. In other words, we seem to have a natural inclination to learn. That is the idea behind this TED Radio Hour as it explores that dynamic experience of learning that begins in the womb and how recognizing this essential nature will revolutionise the way we teach. Sugata Mitra: How Much Can Children Teach Themselves?; Annie Murphy Paul: When Does Learning Begin?; Alison Gopnik: What Do Babies Think?; Rita Pierson: What Role Do Relationships Play In Learning?; Sugata Mitra : Can Schools Exist In The Cloud?
