Sugata Mitra explains how he and his colleagues installed an internet connected PC in an urban slum in New Delhi to find out the process of learning without a teacher to instruct the kids. He describes how the project, Hole in the Wall, demonstrates that curiosity leads to learning through self-instruction. He also talks about Build a School in the Cloud, where he explains that children would find their own way in the absence of an adult to learn how to do something and how to use it.
