Resistance is Futile?

Here at TELS we love the TED Talks. Short. Smart. No fluff. They are usually very creative.

So I wonder, about creativity in the education field. What are we doing that is being done better than yesterday? How did we come across learning to do it better? Today via our Google Reader, John Morrow posted some thoughts about creativity in education and why it is so hard to move forward, or to better our current environments in the field.

We do not want to throw the baby out with the bath water. That, of course, would be a mistake. But perhaps it is time to at least change the water in the tub.

PS. As we are doing blogs this week and we are to be posting on how they might be used in the classroom, here is one bloggers thoughts. You can Google "blogs in education" and find a million more.


  1. Some of the comments on the Morrow article are interesting as well.

  2. As long as I don't have an argument I think I'll be ok.

  3. TED also has amazing artist and performers. I keep watching this over and over http://www.ted.com/talks/imogen_heap_wait.html
