As the school year starts, I like to center myself with great videos, podcasts, and other media. One of my favorite podcasts, Note to Self, recently shared a TED talk by host Manoush Zomorodi. As the digital coach for a 1:1 school, I love the way Manoush reminds us that just because you have technology, doesn't mean you have to always be on your device. In her talk, called Bored and Brilliant, Manoush uses illustrative storytelling to remind us of the value of being bored.
I hope you enjoy this inspiring TED talk as much as I do!
