A quote from a great piece in the NYTimes by Joichi Ito. [Link]
"Neoteny, one of my favorite words, means the retention of childlike attributes in adulthood: idealism, experimentation and wonder. In this new world, not only must we behave more like children, we also must teach the next generation to retain those attributes that will allow them to be world-changing, innovative adults who will help us reinvent the future."
Can the smartphones and tablets create a platform for children to pursue interest-driven learning?
