What is TEDxOntarioEd?
TEDxOntarioEd is where educators, academics, students, and other remarkable people will have 5 minutes to share their ‘idea worth spreading’ about motivation. This dynamic sharing will discuss the concept of motivation, how it relates to students and educators in our rapidly changing world, the tools that enable motivation, and how motivation is manifested in various contexts. Through the support of TED, this event promises to bring together creative minds from across Canada that will immerse an audience of live and remote participants in a rich dialog about innovative ideas.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together
to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDx (name), where
x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx (name) event, TEDTalks
video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and
connection in a small group.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but
individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
