October is somehow connected, at least for most of the world, with education. So for this month our internet choices of the month will be all about education.

Site of the month: Curious

At Curious we believe in lifelong learning. Learning for its own sake. Learning that happens beyond classrooms, and not only in academic subjects (unless you count beer brewing, pipe soldering, and organic gardening as academic). Learning as a necessity of living. At Curious we also believe great teachers are as valuable to society as great business leaders or academic thinkers. We wonder why there are hundreds of high-tech ways to share silly photos, and military-grade technology can help us find our friends at a bar, but teachers have few quality tools to help them succeed online.

We believe teachers are some of society’s greatest entrepreneurs and should be treated as such.  We also believe that videos of cats dancing the Macarena, and super-slo-mo exploding watermelons are really cool, but not the kind of online learning we’re talking about. And that Justin’s new band only reminds us a little bit of this. But that’s another story... Mostly, we believe in being curious.

Site: TED-Ed

TED believes passionately that ideas have the power to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world. This underlying philosophy is the driving force behind all of TED's endeavors, including the TED Conferences, TEDx, TEDBooks, the TEDFellows Program, and the TEDTranslations Project. With this philosophy in mind, and with the intention of supporting teachers and sparking the curiosity of learners around the world, TED is excited to launch its newest initiative, TED-Ed.

TED-Ed’s commitment to creating lessons worth sharing is an extension of TED’s mission of spreading great ideas. Within the growing TED-Ed video library, you will find carefully curated educational videos, many of which represent collaborations between talented educators and animators nominated through the TED-Ed platform. This platform also allows users to take any useful educational video, not just TED's, and easily create a customized lesson around the video. Users can distribute the lessons, publicly or privately, and track their impact on the world, a class, or an individual student.

Blog of the month: dy/dan

I'm Dan Meyer. I taught high school math for six years to students who in many cases did not like high school math. I'm currently a doctoral candidate at Stanford University in the field of math education. I speak internationally and work with textbook publishers, helping them transition from print to digital media. I was named one of Tech & Learning's 30 Leaders of the Future and an Apple Distinguished Educator. I live in Mountain View, CA.
