Rupert Sheldrake

An interesting talk that has apparently been disowned by TED about the nature of science. It’s always good to get a second opinion :)

Jeni Cross

And even more apologies for yet another TED talk. This is Jeni Cross talking about Social Norms and the positive effects they can have on educating people and creating change. A message for teaching here, I think! I’ve spent some time wondering what somebody on the stage side has been doing during some of the TED talks I’ve watched. Here… all is revealed, it’s a mind map being created. I may adapt that for some of my lessons or at least give it a try.

Theses definitely one of my favourite TED talks:

Edit: There are some great resources on Jeni Cross’s web space that can easily be adapted to motivate learners. Find her here:

Apologies for posting about yet another TED talk. This is Caroline McHugh talking about “Being yourself”:

Another fascinating TED presentation on how cameras are capturing the movement of light waves at a trillion frames per second. Presented by Ramesh Raskar:

Steve Ilardi

Another interesting “Hacking” presentation from TED:

Dave Asprey

I found this TED presentation really interesting.

I’m not sure how valid the comments are but I’ll be looking further into the ideas and information. It’s part of a whole series of “Hacking” presentations available on TED.

Sam Berns

A TED presentation from a young man that I find truly inspiring:
