What a wonderful resource TED is! Here are some of the latest TED talks I have been watching.

What should be the relationship between teacher and students?

Rita Pierson, a teacher for 40 years, once heard a colleague say, “They don’t pay me to like the kids.” Her response: “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like.’” A rousing call to educators to believe in their students and actually connect with them on a real, human, personal level.
