My TED story
I joined TED after graduation from high school when one of my former teachers recommended a TEDTalk for me. I watched it and I was completely amazed about what the website has to offer to young people. By the way, it was Dan Dennett's speech about dangerous memes that inspired me that time and it's still my favorite TEDTalk. I believe that this is the way high school students should be taught. It gives much better idea about how world looks like than listening to a teacher standing in front of the blackboard (well, we got white boards now, at least we got rid of chalks) and talking about potato production in Russia (my Geography lessons really looked that way). Czech education system lacks the chance for the young to shape their own opinions about issues of today's world. We are not really allowed to do that. Or at least, nobody encourages us to do that. Nobody discusses with you what happened in the world yesterday and that's wrong. I appeal to Czech teachers to do something about it.
