I’m quite addicted to the TED Talks. I frequently watch several at one sitting, and I think there’s something there for everyone. I highly recommend them.
This latest discovery is a talk given by 12 year-old Adora Svitak about what adults can learn from kids:
“Child prodigy Adora Svitak 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.”
I love the message here: the learning (the teaching) should be reciprocal. Adults should be learning from kids, not just the other way around.
