Today while I was working on a list of the best TED Talks that teachers can watch in this summer, I realized that the list is going to be very long and still would not include all the videos i want you to watch. One solution to this is to share playlists of TED talks created by renowned educators and thinkers like Ken Robinson, Malcolm London...etc.
Whether you are lounging lavishly by the beach or camping with friends and family snatch you a couple of minutes each day and watch one of these wonderful talks.
