Less teaching, more learning

This has to be one of the most inspiring TED talks I have seen this year. Sugata Mitra talks about education as a self-organising system, or at least how it has become so with increasing access to information and communication technologies. Mitra takes learner centric pedagogy to a new level, and if his thinking were to be applied on a large scale, much could be done to raise educational standards around the world, in both developed and developing nations.
