TED, Ideas Worth Spreading (best apps for parents/teachers)
Here's a terrific free app for parents and educators: TED, Ideas worth spreading.
Currently the No. 1 free educational app in the Google Play store (and ranked among our Top iOS Apps for Parents/Educators at smartappsforkids.com), TED provides free access to more than 1,200 videos and audios "from some of the world's most fascinating people: education radicals, tech geniuses, medical mavericks, business gurus and music legends."
I recently watched my first full TEDTalk and it was fantastic. I bought the speaker's e-course as soon as it was finished. Listening to lectures may seem boring, but if you find topics you're interested in, it's awesome.
TED's official Android app presents talks from some of the world's most fascinating people: education radicals, tech geniuses, medical mavericks, business gurus, and music legends. Find more than 1400 TEDTalk videos and audios (with more added each week) on the official TED app -- now for tablets and smartphones. This app is made possible with the generous support of Sony.
