Selecting a good TED topic can be a challenging task for students. Here are some tips that may help:
Choose a topic that you are passionate about: Students are more likely to give a good presentation when they are interested and passionate about the topic they are presenting. Encourage students to choose a topic that they are genuinely interested in.
Research potential topics: Students can start by brainstorming a list of potential topics that they are interested in. Encourage them to research each topic to determine its potential for a TED talk, and to find reliable sources of information.
Focus on a specific aspect of the topic: TED talks are typically short, so it is important for students to focus on a specific aspect of their chosen topic rather than trying to cover too much ground. Encourage students to narrow down their topic to a specific aspect that they can cover in the allotted time.
Choose a topic with a unique perspective: Encourage students to choose a topic that they have a unique perspective on. This will make their talk more interesting and engaging for the audience.
Practice, practice, practice: Once students have chosen their topic, they should practice their presentation multiple times. Encourage them to practice in front of others and to seek feedback to help improve their presentation.
By following these tips, students can select a good TED topic and give a compelling and engaging presentation.
