Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 14, 2015 5:57 AM

Books often provide inspiration. This book list provides 50 books listed in five categories:

* Inspiration

* Leadership

* Educational Psychology

* Learning Culture

* Practice

A short description of each book is provided as well as a link to Amazon (at least for the books I checked). And think of this as a list of 50 great books. The post states "Number one is just as great a resource as number fifty."

If you are thinking ahead to some great summer reading that will impact your classroom next year this would be a great place to start.

50 Ted Talks Every Educator Should Check Out (2014 Edition) | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"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."

Really gets you thinking about how to inspire greater innovation

Drora Arussy's curator insight, December 1, 2013 8:23 AM

Interesting that this inforgraphic chose to put thinking "outside of the box" inside boxes, but in general the idea is important for us to remember. When facilitating a class encourage buy in from the students, encourage them to exercise their minds and be creative!
