To achieve this, she incorporates activities that encourage higher-order thinking in the classroom and is a champion of bringing innovative “20% time” to schools.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Jennifer Nacif tells us how to shift manipulation to motivation when it comes to communicating with our children.

The needs of each personality are not only relevant to the children in our lives, but to everyone we encounter, and Jennifer provides easy and actionable ways to motivate and empower those around us.
