Learning from Our Kids

adora

You can find a TED talk on just about any subject. Being in the learning biz, and many of us parents to boot, we were drawn to Adora Svitak‘s 2010 talk that deftly inverts the adult-as-teacher-child-as-student paradigm. As noted on the TED site, Adora “says the world needs “childish” thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids’ big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups’ willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.”
