With the growth of the Internet, curating content has become an extremely important tool to finding things online. I use Google News to curate my news, Amazon to curate my shopping and Bloglovin to curate blog feeds. TED, a nonprofit with the motto “Ideas Worth Spreading”, has accumulated so many videos from their amazing TED Talks, that it is almost impossible to choose which talk to watch. Enter TED Playlists – TED Talks curated.

TED Playlists - TED Talks Curated

The Talks are curated into TED Playlists either by TED or esteemed guests. Each playlist has a theme which can be anything from “My Favorite Talks” to “Animals that Amaze”. When you search through the playlists, you can narrow it down to playlists curated by TED or by Guests. You can also search by newest or most viewed.

The TED Blog now has a category for TED Playlists. By clicking on “Playlists” in topics, I was able to go directly to the stories behind the playlists, which I found fascinating. And if you subscribe to the TED newsletter, this will be a great way of keeping up with new TED playlists as that are added to TED.

TED Playlists

Here are some TED Playlists that I think you will enjoy:
  1. Did You Know – “A delightfully useful collection of short explanations, how-tos and amusing trivia.”
  2. For Kids – 10 Fun, informative talks for curious kids.
  3. Bono: 8 Talks that give me hope – “Bono picks 8 talks that express powerful ideas — and shares exactly why each needs to be spread far and wide.”
  4. Barbra Streisand: 8 must-see talks for women – Great talks for women, and really, anyone
  5. Re-imagining school – All over the world, there’s a growing consensus that our education systems are broken. These educators offer lessons in how we might re-imagine school.
  6. TED under 20 – Talks from scientists, musicians, innovators — all in their teens. Watch these amazing wunderkinds.

You must watch this 5 minute video I found in the “Did You Know” Playlist. It is David Pogue, tech columnist, with 10 top time-saving tech tips. I swear I didn’t know half of them. You will thank me for making you watch this. I promise.

 

I love TED talks because they can be whatever you need. Some are educational. Others are inspirational. Some are funny, some fascinating. And some are all four. Check out TED Playlists and find some amazing TED talks yourself.
