As I’ve mentioned numerous times in the past, Open Culture is one of my favorite blogs for interesting and academic videos, ebooks, slideshows, and stories. Recently, I started reading another blog that is similar to Open Culture. That blog is called Brain Pickings. These are a couple of posts on Brain Pickings that I enjoyed this week: Elevator Group Think and The Hidden Beauty of Pollination.
Applications for Education
If you’re a social studies teacher or literature teacher looking to bring a quick bit of culture or a thought-prompt into your classroom, Brain Pickings might have what you need. If not, it’s just a cool blog for your own intellectual enjoyment.
