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.
"In 2011 and 2012 I asked readers to share their best tips for new teachers. I compiled all of the tips that were submitted and put them into a Google Slides presentation. I was reminded of this today when I received a couple of requests to share the slides again. The deck of slides is embedded below. I've made the slide deck public for anyone who has a Google Account to edit. Please make a copy and add your own tips if you feel inclined to do so."
In fact, there was recently one very good blog, TeachPaperless, dedicated to this very idea. In short, the idea promotes not just a reduction of paper and other physical resources, but rather a more efficient workflow, quicker communication, improved access to learning materials, seamless digital portfolios, and more naturally connected student-teacher-student networks."
