Let's Build a Video Library App Together!

CrowdED Learning is currently running a crowdsourcing experiment to see how many learning videos we can accumulate by the end of the next year. The premise is simple:

Books, Videos, Films and TED Talks that Inspire Teachers


Nine years ago I created the Books and Films which Inspire Teachers page of the Adult Literacy Education (ALE) Wiki. The lists of books, films, made-for-TV movies, Internet Videos, and TED Talks contributed to by adult education teachers are impressive, but never complete, as there are inspiring new ones made each year.

HBO documentary, “Journey into Dyslexia"

Hi group members,

A new HBO documentary film entitled  “Journey into Dyslexia,” presents profiles of dyslexic students and adults who share their experiences of struggling in school and then succeeding in life.  The strength of the video is because of the many adult professionals who speak to viewers about how they once struggled to learn in school, but now consider their dyslexia a unique gift and the defining reason behind their success.

I just watched a short segment from an ABC news program where an adult woman with ADHD discusses her life challenges and the lessons she has learned.  It includes such advice as establishing and keeping a routine, using time management skills, planning ahead, eating a healthy diet, and using a workout program.
