At this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival, we asked a group of academics within some of America’s top universities to weigh in on the fate of higher education. “We won’t have liberal arts and sciences at all 50 years from now unless we really understand how to save what’s good, but reinvent what’s new and needed,” says Harvard University education professor Howard Gardner. Other panelists include Sebastian Thrun, Elisa New, Drew Faust, Erika Christakis, and Nicholas Dirks.

When did Technology become a tool in our lives? A quick synopsis of technology as adopted throughout history.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
