TEDxKrakówCinema - a new initiative from TEDxKraków

We’ll be getting together to watch TEDTalks and TEDx talks and sharing the TED experience with Kraków

Each time we will focus on a different topic.

Why TEDTalks?

We’d like to create a comfortable space in Kraków for creative debates about the role of technology, education, human behaviour in creating a more harmonious future, where ideas are the source of intelligent and constructive collaboration rather than conflict.

This month

At April's TEDxKrakowCinema we talked about games and gamification and as usual, Kino 18 was packed with some incredible people who shared their opinions on Tom Chatfield and Jane McGonigal's thought provoking talks.

Both talks generated a lot of interest - in particularl Jane McGonical's view that the skills gained during gaming could be applied to everyday life. Tom Chatfield's talk gave us an insight into how gameplaying rewards our brains: for many people this wasn't something new! It turned out that the choice of theme attracted many Cracovian gamers, some with many years of experience, so the discussion lasted long after the formal part of the evening and continued when we descended to Pauza, a floor below.
