Today was another class TED Talk Day in English. First Smith talked about our TED blogs. She said that they are getting better, but some people are still being too superficial. You really need to make deep connections and really think analytically just like if you were having a conversation about the topic. Also, most of the blog post should be mostly analysis, not a summary. The rest of the class we watched the Clay Shirky TED Talk.
