9 TED Talks You Need to Watch

By: Aashka Dave

It’s the start of a new school year, and that’s a lot of pressure. It’s also a lot of excitement, coupled with even more enthusiasm. To make sure that we help start the year off in the right way, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite TED Talks. They’re intended to inspire, motivate, and provoke thoughtful discussion.

TED was born in 1984 with the desire to discuss the convergence of Technology, Education and Design. Since that time, TED has grown into a global phenomenon. TED Talks share some great ideas worth spreading, even at this very university.

So go forth, watch, and tell us what you think. Have you found any ideas worth spreading?
