Getting ready for TED

Posted on: November 10, 2011

I am getting ready for my TEDxYouth@Singapore talk on 19 Nov. The event details are here. I hear that registrations have closed.

I am sharing my presentation as a sneak preview (higher quality Google Presentation is here). Like most of my material, you will not get the full story unless I tell it.

Truth be told, even though I am comfortable speaking in front of a large group, I do not enjoy lecturing as much as I do facilitating and interacting with a class. It is a step backwards in pedagogical time. But TED is often about storytelling and not teaching or preaching.

It has been said that preparing for a TED talk is getting ready for the talk of your life. It certainly feels like it. I’ll just say this: Butterflies and bricks. You can fill in the blanks.
