Can Kids Teach Themselves? (Do you remember professor Sugata Mitra?)

I think every teacher who attended the eTwinning conference in Bucharest (Romania) this years remembers professor Sugata Mitra and his "Hole in the Wall" experiments.
The "Hole in the Wall" project demonstrates that even in the absence of any direct input from a teacher, an environment that stimulates curiosity can cause learning through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.
I have embedded this video for those who haven't listened to professor Mitra yet and for those who want to remember his speech in Bucharest.

Here is also the website of this project: http://www.hole-in-the-wall.com/
