Happy New Year everyone! It’s that wonderful time of the year when we all take a good, hard look at ourselves in the mirror and think, “what is my New Years resolution going to be?” …and then forget we ever made one 2 weeks later.
But here at Corinthian Events, we’re DETERMINED to keep our team resolution this year: to be smarter than our smart phones! And just how do we plan to do this? Easily, especially with help from these five great websites that PCMA inspired us to look at.
Mental Floss is a great website to go to for everything. From articles on trending topics to educational quizzes, this website is like the Pandora’s box of knowledge.
Ted Talks is perfect for when you don’t feel like reading a five-page article on a topic. You can choose from a list of thousands of videos to listen to or watch while you’re at home, taking a break at work, or commuting home.
Ever thought about learning a new language? Look no further than BBC Languages, where there are free tutorials on how to learn over 40 different languages!
For a more philosophical approach to reading, check out Brain Pickings. This could be a great way to start the morning off!
Brain Pump is another website that offers videos rather than articles. You can choose from various categories (including Psychology, Space, Game Design, and Nature) and watch all the videos they have to offer on the topic.
Although we’ll probably be looking at these websites from our smartphones, we can’t wait to see the wealth of knowledge we’ll have by 2017!
