Teaching Kids To Think

Giving children lessons in how to think and learn for themselves can lead to dramatic improvements in results, according to education researchers.

World Hacks meets children learning these “meta-cognition” techniques through philosophy lessons and juggling and looks at the difficulties in implementing the system.

We also hear a big idea about Christmas and look at the best advice for avoiding paying a bribe.

Presented by Sahar Zand.
