We’re very excited to have our co-Founder, Dr. Preetha Ram, speaking at this event in San Jose, CA on April 14th. What is TED? It stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, and is a forum for thinkers, movers, and creators from across the world who want to change the world.
About Dr. Preetha Ram. Preetha is visionary, educator, innovator and entrepreneur. She has a passion for education and this passion has led her to develop OpenStudy, with her cofounders, Chris Sprague and Ashwin Ram and with a dedicated and imaginative team.
OpenStudy is a powerful platform for open social learning, where anyone from anywhere in the world can find help anytime of the day or night. Our global peer learning community offers support, socialization and learning help. It grows because learners who come to learn, love it and stay to help. The theme of the Tedx talk is “Pay it forward” and on OpenStudy, our community does this every day, every minute. From our math whiz in Kenya to our English guru in Texas to our Computer Science maven in Australia – each time an OpenStudier is helped, they create a viral effect, as they themselves will help someone else. Our hashtag is #Take10Teach10. (Preetha’s blog)
