Are you an educator who believes in the power of ideas to ignite young minds, shape the world and create new and better ways of being? Do you believe that great ideas have a place in the classroom, lunchroom, locker room, art and music studio, science lab and everywhere education happens? Are you looking for inspiration to re-ignite your own perspective on all that the world has to offer?
If so, this is your chance to meet like-minded West Michigan educators as they come together to share ideas and inspiration while watching a livestream of TEDxGrandRapids speakers. The 2014 Livestream for Education has grown and will be held in multiple locations statewide. This day-long event will combine the insights of TEDx with the experience and perspective of area educators and students. Plan to make new connections, participate in dynamic breakout activities between talks, and come away with a bunch of new ideas worth sharing with colleagues and students alike.
TEDxGrandRapids supports and believes in Livestream for Education because it encourages new ways of teaching and learning in our schools, allows for inter-disciplinary connections to be made and helps to motivate and inspire leaders in the classroom. Teachers who have attended in the past have changed teaching methods, instituted recycling initiatives, collaborated on new curriculum and incorporated TED and TEDx talks into their instruction – all outcomes that positively affect students in districts across our city and state.
The Livestream for Education, like the TEDxGrandRapids event, is annually organized and produced by a volunteer team. For more information about volunteering for the Livestream for Education, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
