TED Talks Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think.

This website has so many helpful, user friendly ideas for adding technology to your classroom.  I met the creator of the site at the Michigan Reading Conference.  After I walked out of her session, I felt that even I could add technology into my classroom.  It is all about baby steps!  I have also come to realize that not only that I can do it, but that I should do it.  The creator, Erin Klein, is very helpful and assessable.

Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter ... | Video on TED.com

Okay, honestly this isn't related to technology but, I love this woman so much.  I have listened to this young woman perform spoken word poetry more times than I can count.  I tear up every time.  She speaks to the mother- daughter relationship in a way that really stricks a chord in me.  She continues her talk about what spoken word has done for her.  As a former performer of poetry, I could really relate.  I would really like to have my class experience poetry on a personal level.  

 

TED Talks "If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she's gonna call me Point B ... " began spoken word poet Sarah Kay, in a talk that inspired two standing ovations at TED2011.
