For example, it could be ideas on how to make the club better, how to make the community safer, or how to make cars drive further, faster, and safely but by using less fuel. Encourage their ideas to be inspired by a drive to improve the world, or address a universal problem. <br><br> Have members put their big idea into a quick presentation (four or five slides) using a preferred presentation software. This could be Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Presentations, <a href="">Prezi</a>, or other alternatives. </p></div><div class="ExternalClass948C98630B094060818615651C8A72C2"><p>​ Help your members practice, practice, practice!

These presentations could happen the same day or they could happen the next time the group meets, depending on how time and interest permit. <br><br> If the resources exist, try to film the members' presentations, and then ask them to watch their own presentation.

Remind members to give the file a clear name and date, e.g. My-TED-Talk -5-12-2014.pptx. <br><br> This material should be uploaded into members' online portfolio and stored in an organized fashion. Help members identify an organization method (folders, tags) that works best for them and the technology they have selected for their portfolio. <br><br>​ The product of this activity counts toward their Advanced badge.​</p></div>/Lists/Coach/Flat.aspx?RootFolder=%2FLists%2FCoach%2FWhat%27s%20your%20TED%20Talk&FolderCTID=0x01200200F3733329C0533443AE0C3B756D148148
