5 Great under 6 minutes TED Talks for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education - online learning | Scoop.it

It's being a month now since the last list I shared with you here in this blog featuring a set of important TED Talks to watch this summer. Today, I am adding more talks from TED but this time the clips are only six minutes or less long. As short as they are, these talks are a great source of inspiration for all teachers and embed such an enlightening insight that your professional growth will definitely benefit from them. Have a look and let us know what you think of them. enjoy.
