TED is an organization dedicated to Technology, Entertainment, and Design. TED hosts a global conference every year on these topics and more. The best lectures and presentations for the conference are hosted on the TED website. There are currently over 200 talks on TED.com. You may remember David Pogue’s medley about media on the Internet that I posted on Thursday. I have embedded a TED talk about trade versus aid in Africa.
Applications for Educators
The TED talks are appropriate for math, science, and social studies courses. Share with your high school students what the best and most famous minds have to say about today’s most important global issues. TED.com makes it easy to find talks appropriate for your classes with an easy to navigate themes section on the homepage.
