This week marks the end of the school year for teachers. Many will spend their summers working on lessons for next year. Others will take some much needed vacation time. Many use summer as a time to catch up on some non-school related reading.
Instead of reading at night, sometimes I'm guilty of watching YouTube videos. Usually they are music related, often about Broadway.
One of my new favorite watches are TED videos. I really love TED-x (TED Talks) and TED-Ed has some other educational offerings.
Here are two very different TED Talks that I like:
Logan LaPlante, 13 explains how he has "hacked" his education to make him happy
Joe Smith's video has changed how I dry my hands with a paper towel!
Here's the official TED Talks site:
Have a great summer!
