I came a cross this very interesting video, at TEDtalks earlier, This fantastic speaker, Sheena Iyengar, speaks about something we all seem to struggle with!
It’s the intricate problem of “choosing”; and how to NOT lose your mind doing so!!
I believe this is a very important skill in today’s world. We utterly have an increase in the variety of choices we have in everyday life; we’re talking about food, furniture, home-appliances, cars, spouses :-p, or even the simple choice of picking up a bottle of water from the grocery store!
Talking about the subject of education and teaching; I also struggle sometimes; which technique to apply, which method will do for my class, or even which exercise to take to class can be troublesome very often.
P. S. Comments are welcomed 🙂
TED talks is one of the leading web-communities that deal with spreading ideas that show vivid experience, and are thought-provoking notions. The intersting thing is that you can use this website to foster discussion of ideas and to share thoughts over a topic; especially in the classroom. the following website from Edudemic blog has one of the examples of some of the best TED talks for the year 2011. Test it with your students; they are really intersting!
I especially like the talk about “the demise of guys”, don’t miss this one!
