Module 6 – Discussion: TED Talk Analysis
A presentation has the power to share an idea, to persuade an audience, to start a movement, and to change the world. Effectively communicating an idea through the spoken word is what makes businesses and careers successful.
After completing your Module 6 Readings and Lessons, visit TED.com (Links to an external site.). According to its website, TED is “a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). 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 — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world” (Source (Links to an external site.)).
