What is a TED talk?

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design and was first introduced in 1984. It is a global non-for-profit organisation that welcomes people from every culture and discipline who seek deeper understanding of the world we live in.
They are passionate and driven by the overarching goal of ‘making great ideas accessible and spark conversation amongst us (TED, 2017).

You may be wondering why I am talking about TED…

I have discovered TED is another great source for Educational videos , not just for adults but for students too. TED’s collection of educational and inspirational talks relevant to classroom practices and teacher personal development are connected to issues the global community of educators will come across and provide food for thought.

What are your thoughts? Enjoy.

  1. I love ted talks! I just listened to several on block chain last weekend. Very informative – I am beginning to understand this concept at a very elementary level. If you ever have a free minute, check out my daughter’s Facebook info – search for Carrie Sechel. She is doing some really interesting things and just had her first book published (Base Jump). If you don’t get all my photos let me know and I will resend – Georgeane

    1. Hello Georgeane,
      I have not heard of Block Chain, so will need to take a look. I will also look for your daughter’s FB, thank you for the suggestions. We are definitely introducing exciting new things to each other. This is a ‘good thing’ to quote Martha Stewart.
      I did receive all of your photographs and will be popping them on my blog very soon.
      Thank you for sharing your school experiences. I love it.
