TED is a nonprofit, devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks which are 18 minutes or less. The platform today covers almost all topics ranging from science to business to global issues, in more than 100 languages.
TED serves as a perfect companion for teachers, educators and students alike. New educators can plan innovative teaching strategies from the TED contents.
