5 Amazing Websites for Self-Education*





Today Grace With Love Blog brings you a collection of websites that will broaden your mind and provide your brain with a workout when you have a few moments to spare. As a student teacher, technology has become part and parcel of the modern classroom. During my course in Education we have had the opportunity to discover and test new and exciting programmes such as Scratch and Lego Education. The advancement and rapid growth in technology in recent decades is beyond exciting and is a concept we can all use to keep our minds sharp on a daily basis. With this in mind, Grace With Love Blog has researched five amazing websites for you to try out!


1. TED


TED (standing for Technology, Entertainment and Design) is the home of ideas worth spreading! Their talks come in the form of videos covering topics like business, science, fashion, beauty and global issues such as poverty and women's rights. TED is without doubt one of my most frequently visited websites and it is definitely my intention to share more of their talks with you in the future.
