TED is a non-profit organization whose sole objective is the dissemination of ideas through conversations with a specific format, short but powerful and with an average duration of 18 minutes. It is a global community, made up of people from all disciplines and cultures, who believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. TED Talks are all kinds of topics, but no matter what they are always inspiring, they select people who provide a different energy, an energy that we need to wake up and motivate us like we have never done before. When we are young we need at times a spark or a little inspiration to move on and not feel that we are stagnating or staying still, because what better way than to listen to how different people have left the same place where we are and how they did it.
Times change, generations change and therefore teaching methods must also evolve. While technology has allowed the development of new teaching models such as online education, it has also allowed traditional education to benefit from and complement new academic resources. One of these resources are TED talks and conferences, which address different disciplines of knowledge and different social environments, voiced by passionate experts in their fields, who simply talk about their experiences and situations they have faced.
