TED Talk: Curiosity


This TED Talk playfully addresses this month’s SLO: curiosity. It speaks to why intellectual curiosity is so important to children and adults alike. Tara draws from her own experience and tells stories about being dyslexic and her fascination with learning new things. These experiences are the reason she values intellectual curiosity and encourages others to engage in this way of thinking.
