TED Talks

Do you want to get your students involved in One Book, One College events but can't make the events? Incorporate our series of TED Talks into your classroom.  Each month we are watching two TED Talks.  We will have discussion guides for each presentation.

This is a great way to get online students involved in the One Book,One College discussion. 

"TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world." -From
