Please watch any three videos from within the following links:
For each of the three videos that you you watch:
- The speaker’s name, the presentation title, and a hyperlink. For example:
David Grady, How to save the world (or at least yourself) from bad meetings (Links to an external site.), at https://www.ted.com/talks/david_grady_how_to_save_the_world_or_at_least_yourself_from_bad_meetings (Links to an external site.)
- What are the main points being made by the speaker? In particular, focus on what the implications of the video are for you personally, for people in general (or for some particularly group of people), for businesses, for government, for the economy, etc.
- Does the speaker provide facts or data to support their main arguments? Please provide examples of when facts are provided or when statements appear to be being made without reference to supporting data.
- What does the speaker say that you agree with? Why?
- What does the speaker say that you disagree with? Why? (You should be able to find something that is at least somewhat contentious in each video, so please don’t just say: “I agree with everything”).
- Having watched this TED Talk, what are three good questions that you would like to know more about? Please note that “good questions” tend to ask how or why something happens. Questions with yes/no or other straightforward responses tend not to be all that informative. Also, try and ask questions that relate to the wider issues brought up by each TED Talk. Here is a TED Talk on how to ask good questions. Pay careful attention to this video: http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/How-To-Ask-Good-Questions-David (Links to an external site.)
Please answer your questions using the six headings above and provide bullet pointed answers under each of those headings. Your write up on each video should be at least two pages. Your submission should be a single Word file
