We often wonder what is the best way of learning? If left alone, can kids learn by themselves or do they always need a teacher an adult supervisor to guide them? Can they learn and still enjoy themselves i.e. can learning ever be enjoyable and how? Amidst all this talk of child centric education system, can the education process be really driven by kids?
