Shimon Schocken Discusses Self-Directed Learning on TED Talks

An enlightening talk by computer scientist Shimon Schocken on the incredible power of self directed learning.  Schocken and colleague Noam Nisan developed a course whereby students built a computer from scratch and used it to write and play games such as Pong and Tetris.
He also addresses the way that schools and collges assign grades and his beliefs on how this could be improved.  There are also several math apps he is developing that target K-12 students.
