TED Talks Compilation

The TED conference is described as a “group of remarkable people that gather to exchange ideas of incalculable value.”

  • As a teacher, you may find Sir Ken Robinson’s TED video quite interesting.

    You’re right about all of them being awesome. There may be one or two that don’t really get it done, but for the most part, they’re quite amazing.

    When you mentioned Shermer’s talk at TED, I did recommend you watch them all 😉

    If you have the time, run through the TED videos, there’s lots of gems in them, from a vast range of subjects.

    That still stands for everyone, watch them!

  • And it was wonderful advice!

    Everyone, go watch them all 🙂

    The Sir Ken Robinson one is great, the first one I saw was Dan Gilbert on happiness he also has an interesting article on athiesm, from a psychological perspective on his website.

  • And don’t forget the great quote from Daniel Dennett:

    “The secret to happiness is to find something more important than yourself and dedicate your life to it.”
