TED Talks – TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds:Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. For example, TED-Ed grew out of TED talks, and it is an excellent resource for educational videos. Teachers can also create customizable lessons around these videos.
