Kindness can decrease the drop-out rate in schools.
I think that a new way to communicate with the students, the establishment of a relationship mentor /teacher - student and a massive amount of empathy should be encouraged. in addition new education techniques should be applied for the digital natives. Especially regarding their short attention span. I believe . Best, Melina.

Why are we afraid to make mistakes?
I believe that there is a link between the risk taking and rewarding of decision. This is linked to the development of our brains. I recommend this talk that might shed light on the enquiry. http://www.ted.com/talks/sarah_jayne_blakemore_the_mysterious_workings_of_the_adolescent_brain.html Also Ken Robinson TED Talk about 'School Kills Creativity. Let me know your thoughts :) Best, Melina.

It is a fact TED is a unprecedented success. How do you think it differs from other inspirational and original talks available online?
One of the most famous Quotes of Bill Drayton -Founder and CEO of Ashoka - is the following: “the most powerful force in the world is a big idea—if it is in the hands of a great entrepreneur. It’s how a very small investment can make a huge difference.” I think TED, is a great platform to SHARE IDEAS and inspire people around the world. I believe that maybe it is proving that it is not necessary for big ideas to be in the hands of great entrepreneurs to make an effect and create impact and in some way change the lives of others. People that watch TED may or may not be undertaking any kind of entrepreneurial activity after being so empowered by TED speakers, but they are sharing those ideas with friends, family, etc… In a way or an other being part of a social change. What do you think?

Hi ! thank you for answering :) DO you think Ted Talks would impact in more or less the same way if they would be only heard? Such as podcasting the events.. Do you think VIDEO as a ‘medium’ is playing a key role in the way to impact the community? Especially in this “distracted society”? Thank you, Melina.

It is a fact that the curators of TED contribute with a lot of its success! Its just amazing how some talks can just make you feel so human. I believe we need to feel “human”. We need inspiration and mentors of life.. Thank you for your opinion.. All of our thoughts are helping me to build this dissertation. :)

Its true Robert. Recognition its very important, especially for the youngsters. I am trying to understand this phenomenon from almost an “anthropological” perspective. I believe that we are craving for leaders, inspiration and mentors. TED is a great platform which offers this.About the validation… X factor is also a type of platform where “talents” are validated… But TED…. The stories and magic behind each speaker…Its as if the OLD culture of story- telling would be revived in a digital way. I am amazed by this phenomenon and the potential it has to change the lives of people.
