Three TED Talks You Shouldn't Miss


Sir Ken Robinson talks about how schools are killing creativity. I couldn't agree more.

Elizabeth Gilbert talks on an alternate way to see our creative powers. Very inspiring.

Barry Scwartz talks about our loss of wisdom and the essence of improvisation, something near and dear to me, having been a high school teacher.

  1. Great selections, Paul. I've been immersed in TED this week (lucky me: it's my job!), and these are wonderful.
