Kent says it's amusing to see the reaction when he goes to give talks that involve these sites and is told they cannot be accessed. When he gets up to do his talk, he simply uses the exploit, much to the amazement of his audience.
The theme of the TEDx conference is "Chances worth taking in an age of indifference," and Kent will be speaking on changing the education system.

Now it is a fully wired school, with iPads in the hands of every student. Kent clarifies he was not the driving force in this, and was just another voice pushing for change, but it does take those voice out there to get things moving.
"Change is a scary thing, and a lot of time change takes work, and there are unknowns that make people uncomfortable," he says.

a difference in the world. The collective videos have been viewed over a billion times.
Kent's talk was titled Exploring Technology and Interactivity in the Modern Classroom,
Kent wants teachers to have access to the best tools they can when teaching, but in some cases the system can hinder education rather than enhance it. He's made a point over the years to point out flaws in that system, which hasn't always sat comfortably with others.
"TED has been a big thing for my own learning, because I'm not much of a traditional learner," says Kent.

He prefers experience based learning, and says the TED videos were interesting and well packaged way to learn things. There is no shortage of videos that can motivate and inspire change.
While Kent is known to speak out, he is quick to point out it is not to just cause trouble.
"There's a want for this. There are schools that have staff that want to be inspired by this," he says.

"A big part of the talk is about using Open Source tools, not trying to rebrand and remake things that are actually poorer versions of the commercial stuff we use every day," he says
Open source is rights free material, usually software, that anyone can use and change as they choose. An example of this is the Linux operating system and the word processing package Open Office.
Kent adds he does it from wanting to better the education system. He believes that there are good people at all levels of the education system that want the best for the students as well, but making that change can sometimes be difficult.
When he first came back to Nova Scotia and teaching at Forest Heights, TED was blocked. Seeing it as a tool rather than a waste of time, he helped make a case for it to be opened up.
Kent is a teacher at the adult high school, sits on the Assisted Technology Board with the South Shore Regional School Board, is the VP of Communications for the Queens local teachers union, and sits on the provincial professional development committee with the Nova Scotia Teachers Union.
Kent remembers coming back to Liverpool in 2007, and since he had a strong technical education background he was curious to see what technology the then junior high had. He was a little shocked to see computers that were well beyond their useful life span, in a room that was barely used.
Kent says the videos can also be a good tool for teachers as well, to help with the learning process. Once it could be used in the schools that is.
