Ted is for everyone

By DisNameIs_NUGETT - Aug 23 2019
Read more
I’m 11 going on 12 and I love Ted Talks. I seem to find so much from them and I spread that knowledge around school. A lot of people at my school find it useful and some don’t by it doesn’t bother me as long as I’m spreading good knowledge. It might be now or later, but sometime in life the kids in my school will look back and realize that they need that knowledge. And that knowledge will turn them into the people that are going to be smart, responsible, mature people. I don’t die it because I want more people to come to me for advice or any other reason like that. I do it so that maybe, just maybe they will take that advice , share it, and make it into something wonderful. I don’t ever look and say that I’m not going to do it because of what people will think of me because no matter what I will continue spreading this knowledge that I’ve gained for the rest of my life. If anyone reads this comment go out and use what you learn/learned from Ted Talks and make a difference.

So cool

Podcast cover
Read more
Reading slowly -- with her finger running beneath the words, even when she was taught not to -- has led Jacqueline Woodson to a life of writing books to be savored. In a lyrical talk, she invites us to slow down and appreciate stories that take us places we never thought we'd go and introduce us to people we never thought we'd meet. "Isn't that what this is all about -- finding a way, at the end of the day, to not feel alone in this world, and a way to feel like we've changed it before we leave?" she asks.

Creative ways to get kids to thrive in school | Olympia Della Flora

Podcast cover
Read more
To get young kids to thrive in school, we need to do more than teach them how to read and write -- we need to teach them how to manage their emotions, says educator Olympia Della Flora. In this practical talk, she shares creative tactics she used to help struggling, sometimes disruptive students -- things like stopping for brain breaks, singing songs and even doing yoga poses -- all with her existing budget and resources. "Small changes make huge differences, and it's possible to start right now ... You simply need smarter ways to think about using what you have, where you have it," she says.
