    TED began as a research conference combining Technology, Entertainment, and Design, but has grown over the years. There is an annual conference in California, and global conference in the UK and a TEDtalks video site.

      I added your comment to the history paragraph.

  2. Unknown User (llemchar)

    Do we want to explain each program of TED, like TEDTalk, TEDGlobal, TEDActive, etc, in the history or should we apply the different programs later in the outline?

    It sounds like TEDtalk is simply the talks released online for viewers to see. Originally it sounds like these talks weren't on the website but because they attracted so many people, TED wanted to give everyone on-demand access to the talks.

    Since I really had no idea what TED was, I just skimmed through some of the speakers and themes they have posted.  The speakers range from famous people like Al Gore, to people who are just trying to make their organization or story heard.  They talk about all kinds of things such as music, Africa, architecture, and much more. Some of them are very interesting videos, but they have to be under 18 minutes in length.

    The TED2011 conference seems very interesting. It is about the Rediscovery of Wonder, which I thought kind of related back to how  our generation doesn't really "think" as in depth because of the technological resources we have available to us. Back to the conference, it looks like anyone can register to go to the conference, but I couldn't find who the speakers were. Maybe they don't tell you?

  6. I have registered an account on ted site and it supply me a space to record something about ted.I can add my favorite themes,talks,speakers,and I can also post some comments.I think that this can help users to sort out the relevant web resources conveniently.

  7. TED provides people a good platform  to share and discuss various themes,even we can see the speaker:).I watched some interesting videos and I found that there are subtitles in different languages available,maybe this helps to internationalize,at same time I found that each vedio supply different kind of language subtitles,for example ,some of them surppot chinese but some of them don't.Maybe TED needs more translators:)

  8. TEDx events introduce a project about kids which interest me so much.TEDx organizers across the globe will host events for young people. These events will share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, empowering young leaders.I think this project may have some educational value,from which we can think about what we can do for kids.

    I was looking at how this site compares and relates to other sites and the logical comparison is Youtube.  I think the main difference between the two when you are talking about education is the content.  I would never allow a student to just go look for a video on Youtube, but on TED all the videos seem based around adding positive ideas towards people.

    Also for the real world application a very easy thing you could have students do is just watch a clip on the site and write a quick essay about the clip and what the speaker is talking about.  You could also just show a clip in your class and have a class discussion about the clip and how it relates to them.

    I also think the translation option offers a unique teaching and learning experience.  You could have students in a Spanish class translate a speech into Spanish and see how well they do.  An exercise that is sure to more interesting than just sitting and doing worksheets.

  12. Unknown User (stoutm)

    I agree with how the translation option would be a unique way to teach and/or learn. This seems to be more interactive and would be a better way to tell how th student is grasping the language difference.

  13. Unknown User (stoutm)

    Are any of your interested in becoming a fan of TED on facebook or twitter? haha, I realized that the website gives you the option to connect ted.com to your own personal profile.

  14. Unknown User (stoutm)

    Ted does seem to be comparable to youtube. While I agree that ted.com seems to be more appropriate than youtube, I still believe that the students' should have restricted access to the site while at school.

  15. Unknown User (mille102)

    As far as education value goes, I think this could be a great motivator and example for students to see how people can create change by working together as a community.  Some of these speakers could be inspiration for students and this could fit into a social studies lesson about being a good citizen: doing your part to creat change, speak out, use your talents, etc.

    these two links talk about TEDx events.  The first link is from the TED page describing what TEDx is (an independently organized TED event).  and the second is a news story about a school district thas is hosting a TEDx event.  These events could be used in a business or educational setting.

    TED has an Associate Membership Livestream program where you can become a member and view any of the TED conferences live from anywhere in the world.  If you become a member you can also have access to a "virtual dvd" online archive of TED videos and speakers.

  18. TED was born in 1984 out of the observation by Richard Saul Wurman of a powerful convergence between Technology, Entertainment and Design. The first TED included demos of the newly released Macintosh computer and Sony compact disc, while mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot demonstrated how to map coastlines with his newly discovered fractals and AI guru Marvin Minsky outlined his powerful new model of the mind. Several influential members of the burgeoning digerati community were also there, including Nicholas Negroponte and Stewart Brand.->Jin Wen

    Over the years, TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Frank Gehry, Jane Goodall, Al Gore, Billy Graham, Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones, Bono. Yet often the real stars have been the unexpected: Li Lu, a key organizer of the Tiananmen Square student protest; Aimee Mullins, a Paralympics competitor who tried out a new pair of artificial legs onstage; or Jennifer Lin, a 14-year-old pianist whose 6-minute improvisation moved the audience to tears.

  19. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.

    TED was founded by Richard Saul Wurman. The foundation is devoted to " leveraging the power of ideas to change the world". The cost of attendance is $4,400 and it is by invitation only.

  21. Unknown User (krandles)

    Ted cares about people. They actually listen to what people have to say, not just the people that are higher class. Or are people of importance.

    TED is a very diverse program. You are able to learn some things about different cultures and languages. -- Kasey

    just a heads up.  I threw up the TED logo at the top of the page.  I got the image from the homepage of the TED website.
