TEDGlobal Day 3: What You Missed

by Maria Popova, Len Kendall

July 31, 2010



















Session 10: Who's The Teacher?, TED curator Chris Anderson gives his own first TED talk about "crowd-accelerated innovation" – the concept of using the web to improve collective skill by first improving individual skills through peer learning, using a three-pronged approach of locating a "crowd" or community, insuring visibility, and creating a reward or feedback system that motivates desire. "The notion of the individual 'eureka moment' is misleading. We're a social species, we spark each other."

Coverage of the final day of TEDGlobal 2010 coming tomorrow—stay tuned.

Maria Popova is the editor of Brain Pickings, a curated inventory of miscellaneous interestingness. She writes for Wired UK, Big Think and Huffington Post, and spends a shameful amount of time on Twitter.
