TED is a non-partisan non-profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues. More information on www.ted.com.

We show a YouTube clip of a talk by an expert in the particular field; the group then holds a wide-ranging discussion of the subject.

TED is ‘n onpartydige beweging sonder winsmotief wat daarop gestel is om idees te versprei, gewoonlik in die vorm van kort, kragtige praatjies. TED het in 1984 begin as ‘n konferensie waar Tegnologie, die Vermaakliksheidbedryf en Ontwerp (“Technology, Entertainment & Design”) vergader het; vandag dek dit alle vakgebiede – van wetenskap tot sake aangeleenthede tot wêrelds-kwessies. Kry meer inlgting by www.ted.com.

Ons wys 'n YouTube praatjie deur 'n kundige van die onderwerp; die groep bespreek dan die onderwerp breedvoerig.
