Hi- I thought that these videos were worth making you aware of. They are speakers from this year’s TED Conference in Long Beach, California. What is TED? Here is their description:
TED is a small non-profit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Program, the new TEDx community program, this year’s TEDIndia Conference and the annual TED Prize.
I especially liked this one because it reminds me “that it’s not all about Google Earth” . What they’re doing at Virtual Earth is pretty amazing!!
I think the most powerful presentation was delivered by own very own Jamie Oliver. Not only was he invited to speak but he was also awarded the TED Prize. The TED Prize is awarded annually to an exceptional individual who receives $100,000 and, much more important, "One Wish to Change the World." Designed to leverage the TED community’s exceptional array of talent and resources, the Prize leads to collaborative initiatives with far-reaching impact. It’s definitely worth a bit of your time to watch and listen.
If any Teachers in NI are offering classes around this important issue. I would love to hear about them.
