I am currently on vacation and have no time to write, but I remember watching the video below years ago after sharing 3 Rules to Spark Learning last month. This video was a lecture by Sir Ken Robinson at TED titled How School Kills Creativity. I think it is a must watch for teachers, educators, and policy makers in education.
My favorite quote in this video: “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original.”
He also had a great lecture titled Changing Education Paradigms.
Mathematics is used in almost all fields: engineering, health, in movies and animation, weather, biology, history, or even on super simple things like scientifically cutting a cake. However, this lecture about the Universal Hot Crazy Matrix will completely change your perception about mathematics. Watch this video and see how mathematics, particularly graphs, can be used to find a wife.
Remember, do not choose the area above the 8 hot axis and below the unicorn area.
Enjoy and have fun.
It’s the end of the month again! Let us go back to what we have learned this month. We have a few posts this month but I think they are all interesting both for teachers and students.
