Steve Jobs - Commencement Speech at Stanford University in a video (subtitles) and in a DOC file
According to TED Talks—and I totally agree—this is one of the best speeches to be found on the Web. Here you will find the video with subtitles in English and the full transcript. I recommend you use this inspiring video with your university or senior high school students.
Steve Jobs has always been one of my idols—ever since I saw the documentary film of him and his ’team’ of young researchers at Apple. ’In Search of Excellence’ shows him as an outstanding leader, director, coach even cheerleader for his troops. He was brilliant, and he knew how to bring out the brilliance in others. For over twenty years I used this film in my ESL classes and my students had the opportunity to participate in marvelous role play activities pretending they were all part of Steve Jobs’ company involved in changing the world and making people ’love’ computers. For that I will always love my hero, Steve Jobs.
