No, not this Ted.
|Funny Movie, but not what we're looking for.|
I mean this TED: http://www.ted.com/
Quoting directly from wikipedia: "TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate "ideas worth spreading."
This website is a cornucopia of videos, with talks on everything from "What we're learning from 5,000 brains" to "The Power of Vulnerability". TED probably has something that you could use in your classroom, and if not in your classroom, something you can watch and draw inspiration and knowledge from.
One of my personal favorites was the late John Wooden's "the difference between winning and succeeding", which is located here: http://www.ted.com/talks/john_wooden_on_the_difference_between_winning_and_success.html
Lastly, I thought I'd include a shorter video here on the blog. It's kind of a humorous look at using statistics to help you create your own TEDtalk.
This Wednesday I will be working in Lake Benton in the morning, and I will be leaving at noon to attend the CC meet in Colman.
Hope everyone has a great week.
