The best of TED-Ed: How to rethink thinking

The adage goes: You learn something new every day. This is especially true if you watch TED-Ed lessons, which bring to life educational topics as varied as “insults by Shakespeare” and “pizza physics” with animation. As a holiday gift, the TED-Ed team picked their favorite talks of the year. Here, a second look at the lesson: Rethinking Thinking, from Trevor Maber. 

The TED-Ed team loves this video for a number of reasons. The animation is stunning and witty, and it really made us take a step back and think. Couldn’t everyone use a refresher course on how to react just a bit more slowly and thoughtfully? It’s a universally applicable lesson — perfect for the holidays!
