Technology is wonderful at bringing the world to your door – wherever you are. I love the diverse learning made available through TED (Technology Events Design) talks. Technology enables this, but the learning can still be people-focused. Here are three of my favourite talks.

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
Change is the end result of all true learning.
I was at the gym recently, just doing my thing, and listening to the conversation between some young people around me. What I heard was that someone had finished a degree but had no job in the area. (My guess – taking a gap year in Niseko!) There were exchanges about degrees and their value. I suggested that it was something no one could take away from them. And further, that it was evidence that they knew how to learn. It made me think though – what is the real value of education?

Reviewing what you have learned and learning anew, you are fit to be a teacher.
No matter how deep a study you make, what you really have to rely on is your own intuition. And when it comes down to it, you really don’t know what’s going to happen until you do it.
