Charles Leadbeater: Education innovation in the slums (TED talk)

  • education that works by pull not push

  • learning has to be productive to make sense

  • learning that starts from questions not from knowledge in curriculum

  • Chinese restaurant model instead of McDonalds model

  • technology that makes learning fun and accessible

In these models, it seems the "teacher" plays more of a mentor type role of guiding and encouraging.
