It's All in the Mind with Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #141!

Once a week, I have the pleasure of choosing videos for the level 5 English class at YWAM (Youth With A Mission) as I have them for one hour a week for "Listening." The topic this week was, "It's all in the mind."

One of the videos that I chose was from Jacob Barnett on TEDxTeen titled, "Forget what you know," with the subtitle, "The wisdom of not knowing."

Here are a few points that I got from watching this video: 

* Traditional learning does not help us to think for ourselves.

* We learn best when we learn in our own unique way, not accepting everything that is already out there - the straight facts that get told to us.

* We need to stop learning and start thinking in our own unique perspective, which leads to creating.

Check out this fun video by an autistic boy who looks at numbers and problems in his own unique way and be inspired to see things differently!

By the way, the comments below the video have a lot of derogatory statements about how he moves and laughs, but everyone must remember that he is not a typical boy, but an autistic boy who has overcome great obstacles to be speaking in front of an audience. Hasn't everyone seen "Rain Man" the movie?
