Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds | Video on TED.com

Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works -- sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss.
Susan Berkowitz's insight:

She is absolutely right.  Look at the contributions she has made in her field.  Not everyone thinks the same way and thank goodness.  There are so many ways to approach any problem.  Without people who think on different lines and outside the box, the world would be much worse off.

Gunnar Sewell's curator insight, January 25, 2014 7:56 AM

While tablets such as the iPad can be a very useful tool for teachers and for student engagement, it is my strong belief that they should never replace or reduce interpersonal activities. Educators must always remember that the push to use technology in the classroom is mainly the result of high tech companies' marketing campaigns. 

Terry Doherty's curator insight, January 27, 2014 5:45 PM
