This is just a quick post to recommend another blog.

TED is a conference devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading”, and the topics of interest are numerous. I could – if I felt it was relevant – post an endless number of videos that has left me contemplating my own attitudes and practices, both in my private life and academically, in addition to leaving me thirsty for more information and knowledge. However, I will stay on point. Recently TED has created yet another channel for sharing their ideas, and this one is aimed directly at teachers of English as a second language. The blog – tedxesl.com – has ready made lesson plans based on TED talks (including transcripts). This is a potential goldmine!
