I had grad school tonight and we watched this TED Talk from Benjamin Zander. To me, it was incredibly powerful. I'm not sure if that was because of where my head has been recently with thinking about education reform or not but, regardless, I think you will make your own connections to education. It is twenty minutes long and you might be wondering what it has to do with education but you HAVE to watch it until the end. For me the magic happened exactly at 17:15 and 18:23. I would love to hear what it meant to you.
