Dear TEDies,

This week we shall be Time - Traveling :)

First backwards: Do you remember your school days? Good news! Education has changed a lot and there are some astonishing “ideas worth spreading” to be discovered. As we live in a time when one cannot cease learning, to excel or even survive one has to refresh old knowledge and stay up to date with the newest discoveries of science - but do you think school should focus on online learning as well?

Then fast forward: Do you think we really need universities? Are you aware of the countless free online courses many elite universities are offering and the apps that promise to boost concentration and memory in your brain? However, one of the fundamental ingredients is often forgotten: Motivation. Do you feel that the online environment is too distracting to stay focused? We might have some inspiring suggestions for you how technology can help – even by limiting itself in ways you would never have expected. Let’s discover together how to free up time for education and share some experiences and best practices on how to motivate oneself and others online.

As you know: be fast to reserve a seat for you and your friends. We are expecting 70-80 participants this time and your entry is not guaranteed without a reservation on MeetUp, CouchSurfing or Xing. It is very likely that members joining the waiting list are invited to come as well, so feel free to make use of this option.

We can’t wait to see you all again!

Your TEDxOrgs!
