TED Talks are short, powerful speeches, delivered without the use of notes, with the goal of spreading ideas. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, but now the talks cover a wide variety of topics. They are generally 20 minutes or less, and are GREAT tools to use whether with youth or with staff or just for your own personal betterment. Here on the blog we will share some of our favorites with you!
The first is the all-time most watched Ted Talk, and is called “Do Schools Kill Creativity?” The speaker, Sir Ken Robinson, is SO FUNNY and frames this question really insightfully. At Boys & Girls Clubs we have a tremendous opportunity to inspire our members and to be a space where their creativity can flourish. This talk could be used with your staff to discuss how to incorporate youth creativity into your programming.
