Five dangerous things we should let our kids do

Have a look at this TED talk by Gever Tully (founder of the Tinkering School, a school in which children build the things that they can think of).  This highlights the need for our students to create and take risks in practical learning sessions.

In summary, here are the five 'dangerous' things we should let kids do:
  1. Play with fire
  2. Own a pocket knife
  3. Throw a spear
  4. Deconstruct appliances
  5. Break the DMCA, and drive a car (you'll really have to watch the video to understand this one!)
