Again another great TED talk. Barry Schwartz talks about the need for practical wisdom. Bureaucracy and its rules make tend to oppress practical wisdom. Practical wisdom is knowing when to break the rules.

If you want to brush up on your English and want to learn and study at the same time, iTunes U might be the place to go. Several universities offer their courses or lectures freely on iTunes. Here is a collection. Please feel free to comment, if I forgot to mention another university.

There is a great article by Diane Skiba on the use or twitter in education. She compiles a number of examples of the use of twitter in education from several blogs. I particularly like the ideas of the One-Minute Paper, Knowledge Probe, Muddiest Point, One-Sentence Summary, and What's the Principle? It can be extremely helpful that students have to restrict themselves to just 140 characters to express their thoughts.
