TED Talks are a hugely popular form of presentation. It involves a speaker sharing personal stories with an audience that can open their minds to new ideas and perspectives.TED Talks are often structured into three parts– a belief statement or wondering, a sharing with an audience, and an explanation of what was learned and why it matters to the presenter and the audience. Use the worksheet handout to begin thinking about how you will craft your TED Talk and share your early thoughts in the Comments space below. Let us know about your thinking on your belief statement/wondering, or what you would share with your audience, or explain why this topic matters so much to you and your audience.
The google hangout yesterday told us good information about what the prototype looked like and we got an idea about how it will work. We hope you will continue to think of other possible prototypes or ideas to organize the art room. We are going to also think about how and where we should put it. Your prototype had good details and we think that this idea will turn out to be our final idea. When we were talking to you for some parts it would lag out and we wouldn’t be able to hear you for some of the time. Mostly we heard you but sometimes we wouldn’t be able to hear you. I also feel like on the top where you would put the scissors is not that good of a idea, if it falls down then it can hurt people with the point on the scissors. Mostly your idea was perfect but it had some things that wouldn’t work or not work for the children. For the scissors maybe we should have a small compartment on the side to put the scissors and other things. Your ideas were good and we hope you have a nice vacation.

Our high school buddies plan to make a big toy cart with basketball hoops that are different sizes and a lot of shelves that are a lot stronger than wood because the shelves will need to be strong because there are a lot of games that will need to be held on them. We need to move all the toys because the radiator is to hot and when little kids go for the toys they might burn their hands.
We helped them by giving them good suggestions , and thumbs up and thumbs down about their ideas/ prototype.
The challenges were that there was bad connection and we overcame it by listening more carefully and trying to understand them.

- About their prototypes like Margaret’s prototype (it was a spinning circle with a hook and under the hook was a another circle for the backpacks).
- Some people thought Oliver’s prototype is better because there was a space for the lunch box and everyone has their own space and it will be less distracting than Margaret’s prototype.
- Some say that it is going to be squished if you use Oliver’s prototype (the backpack and the jacket).
- If you use Margaret’s prototype, if some people are messy then we need dividers.
- Instead of the 2 hooks coming from the middle, do two different ones from both sides (Oliver’s prototype)
What are you using to make the actual one?
