10 Of The Best TEDTalks On Improving Education

, , 8 Comments

There have been some rumblings that TED Talks may have jumped the shark–a topic our own Nathan Jurgenson took on recently.

Either way, there have been some worthwhile talks given on ideas for changing education, and the folks over at TED have done us all a solid by piling 10 of them together in a single post, starting with the ubiquitous Ken Robinson “Bring on the Learning Revolution,” then including Emily Pilloton’s ideas on design in learning, Dan Meyer’s ideas on a potential math makeover, and Diana Laufenberg on the importance of mistakes..

You may have caught most of them, but if you haven’t here’s your chance. If you’re not sure where to start, give Laufenberg’s thoughts on failure a listen.

1. Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution!

2. Emily Pilloton: Teaching design for change

3. Stephen Ritz: A teacher growing green in the South Bronx

4. Daphne Koller: What we’re learning from online education
