And, his blog was listed by the Top Online University Review as one of the Top 50 Blogs for E-learning Tools and Tips. As an evangelist for appropriate use of educational technology Jim challenges the conventional 'wisdom' that restricts access to learning tools in our schools. 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)
