Children will learn to do what children want to learn to do

Thanks to Paul Simbeck-Hampson, I came across this recording of a TED talk by Sugata Mitra. I don't think I need to add much more to it, really. You're an intelligent person. You will draw your own conclusions.

You've probably been making observations of this nature yourself for years. Perhaps this evidence will serve to strengthen your resolve.

You've probably also realised that, while they have acquired a greater capacity for doing things they find distasteful, adults are not so very different.
