What's the best hidden gem in the TED archive?
Why nobody hasn't remembered about Kiran Bir Sethi? I translated this talk into Russian and I was amazed with her resplendent smile and her wonderful idea about teaching kids to take responsibility. This is a real inspiring gem! http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/kiran_bir_sethi_teaches_kids_to_take_charge.html

We spend 3 billion hours a week as a planet playing videogames. Is it worth it? How could it be MORE worth it?
II discovered that I'm addicted with games, that's why I stopped playing them (though it was very difficult)God gave me time to live a real life and to do something worthwhilIe, to achieve my real life's purposes. I stopped playing and now I feel myself better physically and mentally. And I live without feeling of guilt that I'm doing something wrong. But I'm quite tolerant to gamers. My boyfriend is gamer and he says that games help him to relax and calm down after hard day at work. I approve it because I think that a man should have an outlet for his negative feelings. But for me - best kind of games are educational games, because when you're playing them, you're not spending your time, you're investing it in education and develop your cognitive skills such as memory, attention, or speech. That's why I'd like to take different quizzes or educational courses that have elements of games into them. I wish that there were more such kind of courses, not only for children but for adults too. I think that new knowledge will help to give birth to new ideas.
