Here at Core Learning we have been having a periodic Friday screening of education-themed documentaries and videos, as a means of sparking relevant conversation that can shape and ground our work. This not only brings us all together, but helps us reflect on questions like, “Why are kids in Finland so far ahead?” and “Are we really preparing our kids for the careers of tomorrow?”.
As we sift through more materials, we thought we’d share a great resource many teachers are probably familiar with: TED talks. Most educators have enjoyed these at some point in the recent past. Some of you may even be die hard fans who use them regularly in their classroom to inspire and inform. For you superstar nerds, and the more occasional viewer, we wanted the share this link to all the greatest Education TED talks straight from the source: https://www.ted.com/talks?topics%5B%5D=education&sort=newest
To start you off, here is a fitting talk by John Green, sharing how learning everything online… Happy viewing!
