Charles Leadbeater: Education innovation in the slums

Check this TED video out. It inspires me to teach without fearing about not having high tech equipment or electricity. This video shows how teaching and learning can take place just about anywhere. To make this possible, teachers have to bring an ingenuity and attitude that makes students excited to learn. The challenges some places bring to language teaching might seem insurmountable, and rightly so perhaps. But a teacher who is flexible and dedicated will find that no challenge holds out on rewards.
