On April 30, 2011, Dr. Rana Dajani was a featured speaker at TEDxDeadSea at the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar-Dead Sea.
Here she speaks about how her children inspire her, how We Love Reading began and the huge impact that service learning has on the global community.
TED is a non-profit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (called TED Talks). Their mission is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversations about these ideas. TEDx was created by TED as a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to “share a TED-like experience” in the spirit of “ideas worth spreading.”
The TED Conference provides general guidance for TEDx programs, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. This was TEDxDeadSea’s first event, titled “Education, Creativity, & Entrepreneurship.”
