Children teaching themselves. Project “hole in the wall”

A very interesting research about Education. A computer with internet access was placed in some remote places in India and the curiosity of the people made them discover the new “object” in the hole. The people learned some basic english and where able in 2 months to demand a more performant computer. (without having any computer skills at all). Really amazing thinking of other ways of education nowadays.
