I’ll man-up and admit it, I’m not as smart as a 12-year-old girl. At least, not Adora Svitak, who gave a very convincing presentation on “What adults can learn from kids” earlier this year. Click on the image below to view the video, which is available on Ted.com.

What do you think about Adora’s presentation? Can her ideas apply to your classroom? If so, how? Are there any other presentations on Ted.com that caught your eye?
