A World Of Solutions: Video

When I begin learning about a topic, some of my first resources I check out are: (1) infographics, (2) TED talk videos, and (3) articles from trendy magazines like Wired or Fast Company. A crosscutting format that really speaks to me are visuals, and one of the best visuals experiences is a short, concise video introducing a concept or issue.

One video I really enjoyed watching recently is this clip narrated by Morgan Freeman I enjoyed the sense of wonder, the call for action, and the approach of looking to nature for solutions to our pressing needs and challenges. In the classroom, this resource would be great for kicking off an unit on sustainability or a design challenge that has a biomimicry approach.
