Bring On the Learning Revolution!

Here we are, beginning the first full week of the school year, and I thought I’d share one of my favorite sources of inspiration…

TEDtalks are the result of the annual TED conferences which bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).  There are over 700 TEDtalks available online, and one of the most shared is this one… by Sir Ken Robinson, a creativity expert who challenges the way we educate our kids, entitled “Bring On the Learning Revolution!”  (If you’re so inclined, check out Sir Ken’s previous TEDtalk, “Do Schools Kill Creativity?“)

Coming soon…

  • productivity tools for finding and organizing online resources.
  • a free, open source award-winning math software tool for graphing and algebra.
  • Moodle training!

Just a reminder:  If you’re interested in using social media with students, please contact Christine Buchanan for tips and support.
