Ben Ambridge debunked ten myths in psychology, at least four of which have plagued schooling and education for the longest time. These are:

  • Learning styles
  • Left and right-handedness of brains
  • We use only 10% of our brains
  • The Mozart effect of music

This 15-minute TED talk is worth every minute of dissonance or resonance it might create.

It is the weekend and time for something light. But that does not mean you do not have to learn anything.

If you focus on the content of this CrashCourse video, you might gain some insights on psychology.

If you focus on how the video was made, you might see some of the principles of effective online instructional videos.

I think this video (and practically all CrashCourse videos) does very well with flow, fast talk, strategic visuals, and humour.

CNN had a special on retweeting. And, no, it wasn’t by someone with a lisp writing about US forces retreating from Iraq.

Thankfully CNN did not focus on Twitter as a phenomenon because that has been done to death. Instead, it dove into why followers retweeted tweets. (I can’t help but think how if I was writing this just five years ago, someone might have read my last sentence and concluded that I had gone mad!)

The reasons for retweeting aren’t astounding and seem rationale. But I was quite amazed at how many experts were weighing in on the issue. I wish more school leaders and adminstrators would sit up and take notice!
