Every Kid Needs a Champion -what a great TED talk

I saw a fantastic TED talk the other day, and wanted to share it with you. I think it is very applicable to all teachers, including eikaiwa and university.

I would love to be half as inspiring as this woman.

She was featured on the NPR TED hour. They were contrasting her presentation with Sugata Mitra’s, which was also very popular and suggested teachers aren’t necessary.

Hey Ryan
Watching Mitra’s School in the Cloud talk now -thanks for the tip!
I presume the answer is going to be somewhere in between: skilled teachers facilitating learning using improved online and traditional materials.
