Interesting TedTalks: How People View The World :D

These were a couple of TedTalks I found quite interesting:

1. Susan Cain: The Power of Introverts

http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html

In a world where social interactiion and extrovert qualities are valued more than introverted ones, we come to a point where we basically ignore the fact that about half the population of the world are introverts. In fact everyone is an introvert, some more so that others (or to put it another way everyone is extroverted, some more so than others), according to Susan Cain. In this tedtalk Susan Cain talks about why she thinks the world should not ignore introverts, due to a number of reasons, such as creativity and so on.

And also, Q & A with Susan Cain: http://blog.ted.com/2012/06/15/its-ok-to-eat-alone-qa-with-susan-cain/

 

2. Ken Robinson: Schools Kill Creativity

http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html

This video is really interesting because it questions the authority of schools. Whether you agree with it is up to you. It is good to see a different point of view on schools.

 

3. Gary Kovacs: Tracking The Trackers

http://www.ted.com/talks/gary_kovacs_tracking_the_trackers.html

Nothing to do with PSHE, but this is some scary stuff about the internet. Nevertheless I think this guy is exaggerating it a little bit because I think he is referring to tracking cookies and bots rather than real government agents actually seeing what you do live…

 

4. Eric Whitacre: A Virtual Choir 2000 Voices Strong

Fantastic integration of voices from all around the world. Simply amazing. A must watch (Well all of them are must watch videos).
