There are so many incredibly inspirational people in the world that video is the easiest way to connect with them. I have used Sir Ken Robinson's TED talks, as well as many others, to see education from a different viewpoint and to also incorporate new ideas and ways of thinking into my teaching, as well as personal life. Videos can be extremely important in creating a learning experience for me when I feel that professional development opportunities I am offered at a local level do not assist in making me a stronger educator.

Brian! So excited to see you on the RDC! I agree that videos can help educators grow when local PD is lacking. TED talks have definitely been a hot topic on the RDC. What other videos have you utilized to grow professionally?

I am LOVING all of the educators who find value in TED talks! Tell me a little more about looking at education from a different perspective - what is an example of a time when you used something from a TED talk to inspire your instruction or professional growth? Tell your story.
