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.

5 Ways Kids Can Make Their Own Movies With A Smartphone - MakeUseOf.com

5 Ways Kids Can Make Their Own Movies With A Smartphone - MakeUseOf.com | Professional Topics | Scoop.it
"Spielberg crashed his toy trains. Michael Bay blew his toy trains up. Either way, people who grow up and become multi-million-dollar directors all started when they were just kids. I remember when I got my first camera: it was a Quasar VHS-C camcorder (placed in a Barbie camcorder box by my parents, who thought it was utterly hilarious). My first “film” was a stop-motion piece about G.I. Joes fighting a remote-controlled rat in our family kitchen. Had I access to a device that shot, edited, and distributed my mini-films… I would have been in heaven. Fortunately, such a device exists today: it’s your smartphone. Now whether or not you have chosen to give your child a smartphone, it’s possible to at least allow them access to it as a means for creative expression. Below are five ways to do just that!"

Columbian Exchange Unit

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, December 13, 2014 12:57 PM

Potatoes are one of the most widespread foods in the world, due to its resiliency to harsh weather conditions and its ability to grow to large sizes. Potatoes can also be traced to show the beginning forces of globalization. Before modern communication and transportation technology, globalization occurred at a much slower rate. Globalization spread through trade routes in the forms of foods, resources, and therefore cultures and people. 

BrianCaldwell7's curator insight, March 16, 3:52 PM

The Colombian Exchange is a term that describes the most dramatic biologic transfer in history.  European explorers brought animals and agricultural items from the Old World to the New and subsequently brought back items from the New World back to the Old.  This exchange profoundly reshaped many societies as agricultural diffusion of the potato lead to the changes across northern Europe.
