Here at ADL, we pride ourselves on supporting life-long learning in all of its forms. Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED) educational talks are a brilliant supplement to whatever you are currently learning because they can help us take apart some of the issues that we all face as learners and more generally in life. So, without further a due here are three talks that I found very helpful to my learning and improvement recently.

The art of being yourself | Caroline McHugh | TEDxMiltonKeynesWomen

An open green space with a women with her arms outstretched, it looks idyllic

This stunning and inspirational Ted talk doesn’t seem to have much in common with your learning goals at first appearance. However, working out where your strengths lie and what you want to be doing will improve your motivation and work ethic dramatically.

Caroline is a fantastic speaker and can get to the heart of some of the biggest problems that we face recognising ourself and the different parts of us that make us who we are. A must watch!

How to gain control of your free time | Laura Vanderkam

A pocket watch with it's skeleton showing, you can see all of the small parts moving around

Laura’s refreshing take on time management is a welcome break from many of the other articles that I have read on the subject. She accommodates for the genuine problems that we face and gives us a kick in the right direction. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has ambitions or goals that they are currently not pursuing as much as they would like.

How to Get Your Brain to Focus | Chris Bailey | TEDxManchester

A phone in someone's hand we can't see what they're looking at

We’ve all been here before, haven’t we? Just trying to sit down and work on our project or even our job and we’ve been unable actually to get into gear and make something happen. Chris Bailey does a great job of unpacking why you might be facing some of these problems, and you’ll be glad to hear that the fundamental answer is less is more. I’ll leave the rest for the video to speak for itself, but I’d especially recommend it to anyone who spends a considerable amount of time on social media.

A microphone looms over a desk, who will speak into it?

There’s a TED talk for most topics and ideas, so the world is your oyster when it comes to looking for well written educational discussions. Do you have any thoughts or favourites? Let us know in the comments!
