Sugata Mitra.....something to think about:)!

  I was listening to a TED Talk this weekend about an experiment done by Sugata Mitra called "The Hole in the Wall."  Basically he set up a computer in places in India where kids would have NEVER seen one, never been exposed to one, and had no one there to teach them how to use it.   He was testing to see if kids can learn various concepts and ideas from technology even if they have NEVER been exposed to concepts, didn't speak the languages that it was taught in, or had the money to afford high priced items.  You will be AMAZED at his discoveries - check out his TED Talk below:)!

Happy Monday - didn't see any free apps that I would recommend -
