Video: “Bunker Roy: Learning from a barefoot movement” via @TED #India #hwhtw

Don’t miss this TEDtalk from a remarkable Indian education innovator.  A HWHTW favorite (see India: Grandmothers electrify rural communities)!

“In Rajasthan, India, an extraordinary school teaches rural women and men — many of them illiterate — to become solar engineers, artisans, dentists and doctors in their own villages. It’s called the Barefoot College, and its founder, Bunker Roy, explains how it works.”

Video: Hans Rosling and the magic washing machine

“What was the greatest invention of the industrial revolution? Hans Rosling makes the case for the washing machine.”

His “idea worth spreading” is that the washing machine freed women in the industrialized world from hours of arduous labor doing laundry – but what about everywhere else?  This was one of my favorite talks from TEDWomen – Hans is a real character!
