Ted-Talks Tuesday: Education in Slums


In this enlightening Ted-Talks, Charles Leaderbeater explores breakthroughs in teaching methods used in some of the poorest education systems in the world.  It is fascinating to hear the creative ways that students who live in slums, with illiterate parents are thriving in their schooling.  In one slum, with no access to a school, children are highly motivated to pursue learning, simply due to a social entrepreneur who had the idea of installing a computer at the entrance of the slum.  The hopeful take away from this Ted-Talk, is that education + technology = hope.
