A Great “TED 2010” Article, and Clarifications To Yesterday’s Post

Today I offer my readers another chance to experience the wonders of TED.  CNN.com has formed a content partnership with the TED community and created a landing page called “TED Talk Tuesdays.”  I think you’ll all enjoy this article around TED 2010.  Enjoy! 

 

 

One clarification to yesterday’s post. It is important that my readers understand that my interest in the Georgia tax incentive bill is not an endorsement of “tax cuts to aid the rich.”  It is rather an acknowledgement that tax cuts with the right conditions can create jobs, and steer investment towards areas in dire need of them.  So rather than trying to discount the bill entirely, don’t you think that a tax credit towards investmens in certain “socially responsible” businesses such as education would gain some level of bi-partisan support?  I hope this dialogue can continue in a civil and constructive manner.  It’s critical to our economic recovery.

  1. I’m very pleased to have found your blog: filled with all of my favourite education hubs. I have been meaning to tell you about a new maths resource that is one of my new favourite links, Mangahigh.com. Although the site is new, it has a lot to offer and new maths games are being added frequently.I have been using it in the classroom and for homework. A great teacher’s resource they have put together is a lesson plan guide: http://www.mangahigh.com/Cheers!

  2. Thank you for the kind words, and I’m happy to hear that you are enjoying the posts on this site. I’m sure that over time, my readers will begin to comment more regularly and enhance the discussions, as I would very much welcome reactions, critiques (both pro and con) because I believe that everyone will benefit from civil discourse, which is the cornerstone of our democracy. Thank you again for your support.Al
