Adora Svitak: What adults can learn from kids

Child prodigy Adora Svitak says the world needs "childish" thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids' big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups' willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.

At Rhythm N’ Groove, we are all about the passion for education. We believe that age has nothing to do with ability, and we believe that we should never stop learning, no matter how old we are. We learn as we teach, and we rejoice when our students become the teacher!

Adora Svitak was 12 years old when she gave this TED talk, in which she tells us there is so much we can learn from kids. They are our next generation, and they will be the ones to create the future.

Let them soar as high as they can go!
