Brain Pickings - A Daily Bit of Culture and Thought

As I've mentioned numerous times in the past, Open Culture is one of my favorite blogs for interesting and academic videos, ebooks, slideshows, and stories. Recently, I started reading another blog that is similar to Open Culture. That blog is called Brain Pickings. These are a couple of posts on Brain Pickings that I enjoyed this week: Elevator Group Think and The Hidden Beauty of Pollination.

Applications for Education
If you're a social studies teacher or literature teacher looking to bring a quick bit of culture or a thought-prompt into your classroom, Brain Pickings might have what you need. If not, it's just a cool blog for your own intellectual enjoyment.
