Scribe Period 5, 04/19/13

Hello everyone!

Here is the homework for the weekend:
   -Read the Design chapter in A Whole New Mind
   -TED blog #1 on Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk video is due on Monday
We watched the Power of Vulnerability TED talk which is an option for our second TED blog due on Wednesday. When the video was over we shared our thoughts on the video:
  • How powerful is the story in the TED talks? Very
    • Personalization
    • Relatable
    • Adds perspective
      • Use in your own TED talk
  • Challenge yourself to grow each year because good things will come of it
  • If you numb the bad things, you numb the good things also
  • The reward from your vulnerability is amazing
    -Think about this while doing your own TED talk
  • Don’t conclude your speech by saying you’re done

      • Smith also told us a story about how she had to talk in front of 1,000 people and how all she could think about was what could go wrong, but she still decided to embrace to this for your own TED talk.

    Afterwards we watched Sarah Kay's TED talk, If I Had A Daughter, because Smith had thought we had watched it a while, but we hadn't.
    We ended class with a quick debrief on the TED talk:
    • Very personal
    • Shared stories
    • Relatable
    • Speaker style
      • Eye contact
      • Hand gestures
      • She faked that she’s comfortable
      • Tone of voice
      • Don’t hesitate
      • Speak clearly
      • Exciting, interesting
      • Not monotone
    Smith will be gone on Monday because her kids have school off.
    Have a great weekend!
