What are TED talks?

I am always in search of inspirational stories and videos to share with my kids because they are inquisitive, full of creative ideas, and interested in new technology. If you’re in a similar situation, TED Talks (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a great source for inspirational videos with some of the most fascinating people in the world who are challenging others to think about an aspect of your life in a different way.

There are more than 1,000 TED Talk videos, but don’t despair the Talks from Inspiring Teachers and 9 Talks by Impressive Kids series are a great introduction to what you will find on the TED.com website. The videos average approximately 10 minutes and are usually less than 20 minutes long. Take a few minutes to explore the website. I’m confident you will find a topic that will peak your interest and hopefully your children, too.
