Each week, I will pick a TED talk to share with PLSD. This talk could be about teaching and learning or about technology or about leadership or just something fun. TED is a world of spreading ideas and thinking outside of the box. TED is a world that there is no right or wrong, only what if. TED opens the door for innovation, creativity and the future.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
