Teacher, Need Inspiration? Watch these TED Talks

We have compiled a collection of TED Talks to ignite passions, pique interests and inspire educators

Every kid needs a champion

 

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.

Teach arts and sciences together

 

Mae Jemison is an astronaut, a doctor, an art collector, a dancer ... Telling stories from her own education and from her time in space, she calls on educators to teach both the arts and sciences, both intuition and logic, as one -- to create bold thinkers.

Let's teach religion - all religion -- in schools

 

Philosopher Dan Dennett calls for religion -- all religion -- to be taught in schools, so we can understand its nature as a natural phenomenon. Then he takes on The Purpose-Driven Life, disputing its claim that, to be moral, one must deny evolution.

How to learn? From mistakes

 

Diana Laufenberg shares three surprising things she has learned about teaching -- including a key insight about learning from mistakes.

The life-long learner

 

Wofford College president Bernie Dunlap tells the story of Sandor Teszler, a Hungarian Holocaust survivor who taught him about passionate living and lifelong learning.
