Mastering Technology One "Byte" at a Time

I am sure that you have probably heard about TED Talks before. There are some pretty spectacular ones out there. They are being used in the classroom more and more every day. TED stands for technology, entertainment, and design. It is ran by a non-profit organization and runs global conferences under the slogan "ideas worth spreading."

Have you ever been to a conference and thought, "Wow, that speaker was really great! I wish that my students could hear him/her speak." TED Talks has so many conference speakers and talks to choose from. There are also so many great TED Talks that are great for us as educators to listen to and get inspired ourselves.

Below are some TED Talk videos that you might find interesting. There are so many more available as well. I found the two that I have shared below on YouTube.
