Lectures for Thought

Recently, I’ve been watching the lectures posted on ted.com. TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, is an annual conference that brings “together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).” The one by Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain researcher who watched her own stroke unfold, is unforgettable. For their thoughts on education, though, I highly recommend those by Sir Ken Robinson, who talks about how schools kill creativity, and by Dave Eggers, who talks about how a little one-on-one tutoring can go a long way.
