Kids and Self-organized Learning

Kids are amazing. They can adapt to almost anything, and their lack of preconceptions gives them an astonishing (and humorous) perceptive power. I was reminded of this watching Sugata Mitra's inspirational TED talk about using the cloud to build self-organized learning environments for children. The capabilities that some of the kids in this video demonstrate, with nothing more than a question to solve and a computer, are quite astonishing, and really do point towards a new way forward for teaching and learning.
