Learning by doing

Speculation; Education is a self organising system, where learning is an emergent phenomenon -Sugata Mitra, Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences.

See this TED why children needs to have a will to learn, and how they can do so by using discussions, group work and comparison as a tool.

See also the homepage for the Hole-in-a-wall research.

Learning by doing and by emerge is not just a tool to teach kids. See here why lessons is a waste of time in adult learning.
