Lollipop Moment

For monday the 30st we had to make a video answering these four questions about a ted talk we watched in class.

1. Do you remember having a lollipop moment, a moment where someone said or did something that you feel fundamentally made your life better? It could have been a friend, family member or even a stranger.

2. Did you realise it was what Drew calls a “lollipop” moment or is it something you haven’t put much thought into?

3. Describe the situation: When, where and how it happened.

4. Have you thanked that person for their help? Do you think they know how valuable they are to you?

heres the video of the Ted Talk:

Ted Talk Leadership

Today, 16/3 we watched a ted talk about leadership. All together we completed a chart. Here is the document:

Then, our task was to answer some questions

Do you think small acts of kindness can change someone’s life?

I do believe that an act,even a really smal,l one can change someone´s life. For example, when telling someone a compliment. By doing that you can make a person instanty happy and it is not that difficult.

How do you think each person in their own way can positively affect the people around them?

I think that we can make different acts that can positively affect the people around us like: giving food to the people on the streets, helping disabled people, helping our friends or family when they are feeling depressed or sad and many other thing that are emphatic from your part.

What do you think everybody did when he says “Everybody lost it”? (min 3:09)

I think that when he says “Everybody lost it” he means that everybody lost their minds. To «lose it» is a very common expression that means to suddenly become unable to behave or think in a sensible way.

What do you think the word “catalyst” means? (min. 4:28)

I think the word catalyst is a moment or person that causes a change.

After watching the TED Talk, what do you think are the traits/qualities a leader should have? Have you changed your mind after this talk? 

After watching the ted talk i think that the most important traits of a leader are:  love, kidness, inspiration, empathy and confidence. Before watching the ted talk i thought that leadership was more about respondability, strictness, authority and control. I changed my opinion after watching the video.





Ted Talk Adora Svitak

Our task for monday 9/3 was to watch a ted talk from Adora Svitak and answer some questions.

This is the video: ted talk


Why do you think Adora wants people to stop using the word childish?   

I think that Adora wants people to stop using the word childish because she believes that it is disrespectful, discriminatory and critical towards children. She also thinks that children are not inferior because they are younger. Adults think they are more intelligent because of their age but age has nothing to do with it. A kid can be smarter than an adult and people cant always realize that.

Why does she say that it is a good thing for kids to dream about perfection?

She says that it is a good thing for kids to dream about perfection beause it gives them inspirations and hopeful thinking. Also, Adora mentions that nothing can really happen if you don´t dream about it.

According to her, how should learning be?

Adora believes that learning can also be the other way. Adults should learn from children. They should learn how kids have fun, how they are not scared to try new things, how they are always curious and love to learn, how they always say their mind and how strong their imagination is. But,unfortunatly, this doesn´t happen often because of the lack of trust that is shown from their part.

What does she mean when she says: “when expectations are low, trust me, we will sink to them.” (Minute 4:35)  Whose expectations?

She means that when adults expectations for the ability to face challenges from kids are low, we should try harder to prove them wrong.

When did Adora say the following phrases? (Which minute?):

a.  Our audacity to imagine helps push the boundaries of possibility. 2:32

b. …we are going to be the next generation, the ones who will bring this world forward .7:27

c. The traits the word “childish” addresses…1:14

d. … adults often underestimate kids’ abilities. 4:42
