PBS and WNET have teamed up to produce Ted Talks Education, the first original TED public television education special set to air April 16. The series, announced today at TCA by WNET VP Stephen Segaller, will feature thought leaders on the topic of learning, including Bill Gates, author and educator Sir Ken Robinson, and social activist and educator Geoffrey Canada. TED is a nonprofit organization dedicated to “ideas worth spreading.” It is not, joked Segaller, “Seth MacFarlane’s potty-mouthed teddy bear.”
