More TED Talks

As if the TEDxRedmond event hadn’t been amazing enough for our two eldest children, there is the opportunity to bring TED to more of our youth.  On November 20th, 2010, TED will be holding a 24 hour worldwide event called TEDxYouthDay.

Anyone is invited to set up a viewing location, organize educators, or even organize youth to gather, view videos from past conferences, and include live speakers to present.  Details are here, and while there are various ways you can get involved, you should also check to see what’s already being organized in or near your community.

We’re talking about getting together a modest group for a viewing party, and we’ve already begun discussing some of our favorite and most memorable TED talks we love.

Some of our favorites:

Richard Preston on Giant Trees

Paul Stamets on 6 Ways that Mushrooms Can Save the World

and of course, Sugata Mitra’s Research into Education
