TED talks have been around for a long time now and almost every big college and university has been hosting them. Heck! There are even ted talks in many cities now i.e TEDxDelhi, TEDxKarachi, TEDxPune. but what honestly is TED and how is it growing so rapidly?
Well TED which is short for “Technology, Entertainment, Design” is a media enterprise which posts talks online for free. Those talks have new ideas for humans to apprehend and learn from. you could frequently find some viral TED talk at the same time as browsing the internet or the use of social media, soon you’ll find yourself getting sucked into the enthralling idea that the talk is trying to portray. Don’t believe me? Check yourself by looking a few talks!
12. YOUR BODY LANGUAGE SHAPES WHO YOU ARE BY AMY CUDDY:
This TED talk is unique and, in a way, very deep because it forces one to address one’s true self. It’s also quite amazing because it teaches us a life hack. Yes! this one actually teaches you how to fake confidence. What? Fake confidence? how can you fake confidence? Well, check out the talk and find out yourself. Oh, and did I mention the talk was a Harvard professor? Truly one of the best TED talks out there.
11. HOW GREAT LEADERS INSPIRE ACTION BY SIMON SINEK:
A relatively old TED talk but with another powerful message. This talk will teach you how to be a leader by teaching you some basic concepts. It underlines the fundamental principles of many of the world famous leaders and conveys them to you, enabling you to use them so you can rise to their level.
10. A MUSICAL GENIUS BY USMAN RIAZ (TED TALKS):
One might think oh! this is one of those talks where they play music and get into the flow for the entire session, but that’s not the case. This TED talk opens a gateway to something bigger; an educational revolution. This talk is by a young talented Pakistani boy who wanted to learn different styles of music but couldn’t find anyone who could teach him because there aren’t many musical instructors in a country like Pakistan.
“I Decided to make YouTube my Teacher” –Usman Riaz
So he decided to make YouTube his teacher and learn from there. In this TED talk you will learn how much YouTube can teach you and in my opinion, this TED Talk marked the end of physical educational institutions as we know it.
