Letting Learning Happen

This Ted Talk from Sugata Mitra is inspiring.  His 'hole in the wall' experiment provides the evidence for the argument that schools, as we know them, are obsolete.   Some key message: It's not about making learning happen, it's about letting learning happen.  Also, it's not about telling students 'the answers' it's about asking the 'wondrous questions'.  Ask the wondrous question then sit back and enjoy the answer.
