Intrigued Children Seek Learning on Their Own

March 11, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

 

When I started working with kids 17 years ago, I often heard, "Your expectations are too high!" I never quite understood that since I was cooking with my mom at 3-years old, had a bank account in 1st grade, took piano lessons in 3rd grade, and was exposed to so many different educational opportunities. I was simply providing the kids in our After-School Academy with the same expectations and opportunities I had as a child.

 

Sugata Mitra obviously believes in kids, too. Watch this video to see what happens when kids are simply provided a new tool...without even giving them any instructions.

 

Believe in what's possible and work toward that end. ...and enjoy watching and participating in the journey.
