Seeking ways to differentiate instruction in your classroom? Look here for quality outsources on a complex topic. Ferlazzo's "power-packed line-up" of guest responders speak to the issue. Additionally you'll find a compilation of Best Resources on the subject.    

David Miles's curator insight, April 19, 2014 9:10 PM

I find it challenging to work out how to differentiate (or whether I am differentiating) lessons in secondary school classes where everything is driven by the needs of an examination system. This idea, that there are multiple incarnations of differentiation, I find quite helpful.

50 Inspiring TED Talks For Teachers: Updated For 2014

by Sara Briggs


"The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.


So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher."

The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher.

Using TED Talks to convey an important message or spark creativity might be more effective in teaching students than an individual agenda or preconceived notion of what should be said. Furthermore, TED Talks challenges educators everywhere to think differently and encourage the same in their students.

These are the best TED Talks for any educator because they make us laugh, warm our hearts, break down barriers, and always inspire us to dig a little deeper and push a little harder, challenging your educator perspective.

Not all colors mean the same things to different people. For example, wearing red as a Cherokee would signify that you are successful and triumphant; whereas in South Africa, it represents mourning.  If a color evokes a particular emotion or connotation in one culture, it is likely to evoke the opposite in another culture.
