Elizabeth Forward High School senior Tyler Wachs spent the last nine weeks using computer-aided-design software, a computer controlled cutting machine, a 3D printer, a laser engraver and old-fashioned tools to build a canoe. On Friday, it got its first test run in the school swimming pool. As the boat was launched, Bart Rocco, superintendent of the district, said, “Here’s a kid who just had an idea. That’s what’s so neat about this.” Over the past nine weeks, 17-year-old Tyler and student teache

Claudine Revol's curator insight, April 28, 2014 5:00 AM

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.

My grandfather had nothing and worked into his 80's.  He lead my family. Jane Goodall is a leader in saving the wild life.  I am very involved in that.  Henri Matisse was a leader in simplicity in Art; it doesn't have to be detailed to get the point across. I think President Bill Clinton was the best leader the US has seen as he helped college students and eliminated our deficit.  CHef Gordon Ramsey is an amazing leader although he runs with an iron fist, he commands respect and excellence in his kitchen.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 22, 2015 6:14 PM

The students of tomorrow will demand the curriculum of tomorrow. This statement engulfs the idea that education has to change with the times. What used to work, no longer does. We have to make some aggressive changes to education in order to support students in developing the skills that employers expect. I am privileged to work for  district that has many of these new technologies in place. There is a definite awareness in education that our instruction and pedagogies need to be adjusted or revamped to fit our learners needs. The constant news flashes are not new and we are on it folks!

* Motivated to Learn: A Conversation with Daniel Pink

* Motivating Young Adolescents by Rick Wormeli

* One to Grow On/Releasing the Will to Learn by Carol Ann Tomlinson

I suspect we many of us would like to see more of our students motivated in our classes. These articles may provide some insights. Please be aware that the top link a is to the current issue. Once this has been updated a new link to the issue will posted here.

8 Technologies That Will Shape Future Classrooms | The Principal's SCOOP | Scoop.it

What does the future of learning hold? What will classrooms of the future be like? Emerging technologies such as cloud computing, augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing are paving the way for the future of education in ways we may have yet to see. At the very least though, we can extrapolate from what these promising technologies and predict how schools will adopt them in time to come.
