TED Talks in most countries!
Hi Ramon, there are TEDx events in different parts of the world. These are independently organized TED events (http://www.ted.com/tedx). Apparently there´s one coming up in Goiânia, check it out: http://www.ted.com/tedx/events/2387 (meu nome é esquisito mas sou brasileira, fique à vontade de me escrever em português se quiser!)

Test Schools, Not Children
I SO agree with you! Because the thing is, schools ARE tested, scored and ranked... but for things like how many of their students got into "good" universities, average SAT scores, drug use, teen pregnancy, bullying, number of dropouts. The important, meaningful things - in my opinion, of couse - are not. Things NOT measured in GDPs, as pointed out in Robert Kennedy's famous '68 speech. Things such as motivation, engagement, creative output, a sense of belonging... I am no scholar, and don't have any data to back me up on this. However, I have a very strong feeling that measuring things like that, and holding schools responsible for providing those things as strictly as we hold them responsible for teaching kids how to read and write might even make testing both kids and schools a thing of the past. What do you guys think? (By the way, if ou haven't heard the Kennedy speech I referred to, look it up on YouTube - it is visionary and incredibly powerful!)

Neil Pasricha: The 3 A's of awesome
Hmm... not really. I´m from Brazil, and felt I could completely relate to the essence of what he was saying. I didn´t feel it was as much about geography as it was about being human - which is something we all share.
