Are State Budgets Are Breaking US Schools? (presentations)

The foundation's logo.Image via WikipediaThe TED Talks series is a shining example of experts in their respected fields giving powerful and passionate presentations.  And although most of them use a powerpoint slideshow of some sort (Keynote) they never once use it to display insane amounts of information.  Rather they use the opportunity to tell a story that is important to them in order to get you do something about it.

Bill Gates presentation is a sobering view of economics and budget shortfalls overall and in particular for education.  What are the 3 things Bill Gates wants to happen?



I also love Adora's Svitak presentation and Prezi (www.prezi.com) about What Adults Can Learn From Kids. Could you do what she did in front of all those people?
