TEDxNASA - William A. Draves - Nine Shift - What Matters Next

He edited his first newsletter at 12 for a scout troop in his hometown of Fond du Lac, Wisc. William A. Draves is the president of the Learning Resources Network (LERN), the leading association for lifelong learning that boasts more than 4,000 members in 20 countries. Originally headquartered in Kansas, LERN went virtual in 1998 and is now a leader for online learning. Between 1900 and 1920, Draves says, the whole world changed, and it's happening again. Half of all learning in the 21st century is online. Draves believes the Internet is delivering cognitive learning better than face-to-face classes. The author of Teaching Online, he is the most frequently interviewed expert on lifelong learning, including being quoted in the New York Times, and on NBC Nightly News. About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
