TEDxYouth@Toronto will bring together a line-up of inspiring speakers, spectacular performers, and Toronto’s inquisitive young high school minds in the spirit of “ideas worth spreading”.
The theme for this November is “Switch: Change Your Focus.” There were many ideas behind this theme. The concept of shifting perspectives or considering new influences and possibilities. It happens when we challenge our thinking or experience a sudden change of mindset when something just clicks.

Becoming Human: How wearable technology will make us more human again
Our current technology has added to the noise around us which often causes people to lose connection with who they are, the people around them and that fact that they are part of something larger then themselves. This often leaves them lonely, depressed, depleted and searching for more. But the next wave of computing through the Internet of Things, wearable tech included, will begin to change all of this. From health, to relationships and even a spiritual connection, this talk will focus on how wearable technology and the Internet of Things will help us be more in tune with ourselves and each other.
