A little idea

Came across this article recently. The author suggests 5 TED talks teachers should watch with their students. Pretty awesome list.

Teachers are finding more and more resources to share and use to stimulate and engage their students. The art of telling answers is now giving way to the art of asking questions.

Knowing the right question to ask can develop thinking and seed a seminal moment while in the past it was all about answers, exams and results. Learning for learning’s sake – wow, what a concept.

For me, I think this video is the one I would choose to watch with students. After the video, I’d ask, ‘So, who’s a liar?’ and watch the sparks fly!

Who says learning isn’t fun?

Incidentally, if you’re looking for a list to check how you’re doing as a teacher, I’d recommend this one.
