School Country - Transforming Education Math Worksheets, Activites, Games

Child driven educaiton

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? Can they decide what they want to learn and how? Can they be motivated to learn interesting things while working together?

This excellent talk on TED.com by Sugata Mitra explores these questions and answers some of them based on internationally conducted experiments. Worth watching and spreading!

How do you get it right in the end though? Is it enough to just blindly follow the steps involved without thinking about what you are trying to achieve? My observations show that this just doesn't always work. There's another element involved that is often needed to make it work don't you think?
