FTOTW – Superstar Effect, Giftedness, Biomimicry, Teaching B Students….

Some of the best links i shared last week. Hope you enjoy it.  It will be very helpful to me if you comment and let me know if you agree with my ratings. For example, if i tagged something “brilliant”, do you agree with it?

    Hello Sukumar – thanks for consolidating your favorite tweets of the week… It could be a personal taste difference.. I’ve more liked all your level 2 – vv interesting ones than the brilliant ones… It can also be that the brilliant ones are way beyond my reach of apprehension..

    I can openly say that I’ve learned a lot through your tweets in whatever rating they are… please continue….

    Based on your description of the scale

    I found #2 & #4 *#%@ Brilliant. I discussed #4 with my sister and my mom and my SIL. Very relevent to ppl bringing up young children.

    #5 n #6 interesting

    #1 v insightful
    #3 agree with your rating.

    Thanks a lot Hari. Like Archana has done can you please give me 1 or 2 examples of the vv interesting ones that you thought were brilliant? That will help me tune my ratings scale.
