Adora Svitak: The world’s youngest teacher

I first came across Adora as a she was mentioned in Curtis Bonk’s book “The World Is Open” (which I wrote about in an earlier posting).

Curtis stated that he was amazed by this young lady and what she had managed to achieve in terms of having written three published books, poetry and also becoming a teacher who uses new technology as the means to get to her “audience”.

She is also an accomplished speaker who has just appeared at the 2010 TED Conference!

What excites me about Adora is that she is a true child of the Digital Age and is probably its first prodigy/genius but not its last! To get a flavour for the character and personality of Adora look at the video and then go to her website Look out for her TED Talk when it appears on the web it is bound to become one of the favourites from the current series of Talks and I would bet that it may not be her last one!

Vodpod videos no longer available.
