I do. They frustrate me a bit because there are just so many and I don’t know most of the speakers. You can spend an evening jumping from one talk to the next. I prefer recommendations, here are two I recommend.
The first talk is by Dan Meyer of the dy/dan blog. His blog was the source I used to get started on Standards-Based Grading. Plain and simple, this talk is an eye opener.
The second TED Talk is by Simon Sinek. His talk was recommended by Frank Noschese at the AAPT meeting. Excellent recommendation Frank.
If you have some favorite TED Talks, please share the link or the name of the speaker.
If you are not familiar with TED Talks, you need to come out of your cave. I have a problem with these videos. I can’t stop watching them. Life got busy and I guess I forgot about filling my brain with a little bit of inspiration. I was recently reminded of the TED Talks by Kaitlyn. She sent me a link to her blog with 15 physics talks. You can find her blog post here: http://www.onlineuniversities.com/15-fascinating-ted-talks-for-physics-students/.
When you are there, make sure you take a look at this talk by Dean Kamen. I’m showing it to my engineering and robotics students tomorrow. My hope is they see the importance of what they are doing.
