Several weeks ago I had the honor of taking the stage on the 40th floor of 7 World Trade Center in New York to participate in TEDxNYED, ”… an all-day conference focusing on empowering innovation in education, … being held in New York City on Saturday, March 5, 2011.”
I’d like to thank the organizers that brought me there, they were an incredible group that saw to it that things ran smoothly: Karen Blumberg, Co-Curator The School at Columbia University - Basil Kolani, Co-Curator The Dwight School - Dan Agins Pawcatuck Middle School - Sean Freese Lawrence Woodmere Academy - Kiersten Jennings Chou Independent Curriculum Consultant - Tamara McKenna The Elisabeth Morrow School - Erin Mumford – Nightingale-Bamford School - Jeff Weitz Horace Mann School
As I watched the presenters the themes that were reverberating were change, student centered learning, creativity. Find them here.
I’m afraid I went over my allotted time, a minor glitch with the timer, my fault for not noticing as I started, I take solace in that I’m not the first to do so. : )
Learning is messy!
