TED How We Learn

TED How We Learn

Teachers of all kinds can find fresh resources — and inspiration — in this batch of TEDTalks. Some talks may shake your worldview: Sir Ken Robinson questions the very basis of our education system, while Erin McKean does the same for our most sacred of reference books, the dictionary. Others (like Dave Eggers) celebrate the extraordinary power of teachers and schools — and share ways you can help them.

Look here for pointers to amazing classroom tools and techniques. Alan Kay shares some software tools that help kids “get” math and science instead of just memorizing facts, while Richard Baraniuk points to his online repository of open-source and free textbooks.”

Another excellent site along the lines of TED.com is Pop!Tech
