TED lectures

 

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) lectures now are a big part of my day.  As a retired senior seeking inspiration and meaning in my life to join the joy of spending more time with my husband, children, grandchildren and friends a daily TED lecture is a must.  On weekends, maybe two or three.  

Check out TED on wikipedia which gives a history of the 18 minute talks given by people of achievement which were first only heard by attendees at expensive conferences.  But now they are free on the web.  Today I listened to talk by Kiran Bir Sethi on how she teaches kids to take charge in India and how those students  have been able to make changes in their communities.   A “must view” for all teachers, school officials and everyone dealing with children.  I could go on and on about all the great things I have learned in these Ted lectures but you must try it.  Go to http://www.ted.com/  and watch one of the new and highlighted talks or search for fields of your interest, medicine, photography, schools, ...whatever.  Or get a free TED application for your iPhone or iPad or smart phone.  Enjoy, be informed and inspired.

 Try it.
