Introducing the TEDGlobal 2013 speaker lineup | TED Blog One great part of TEDGlobal in Edinburgh—events held in castles. Photo: Ryan Lash Few sensations feel better than when your mind does a backflip and, all of a sudden, you are suddenly able to see things in new and unexpected ways. At TEDGlobal 2013, themed “Think Again,” you’ll have this feeling often. “The approach we adopted,” explains TEDGlobal curator Bruno Giussani, “is to take a closer look at the global remix happening before our eyes as power shifts, culture and technology intersect, and hopes and anxieties collide.

NAP Members Area: EDEN Secretariat's blog: Living in the age where "knowing" may be obsolete Interview with Sugata Mitra by Steve Wheeler The media and education worlds have been buzzing over the last few days about the work of a quiet, unassuming Indian born professor. Born in Calcutta in 1952, Sugata Mitra started his academic career in computational and molecular science. His later research also encompassed biological science and energy storage systems.
