Abstract/Program Book Description:
HELLO potential TEDsters! Have you been toying with the idea of organizing a TEDx event or a TEDED Club? Want to help kids develop leadership skills and 21st Century Fluencies through self-motivated learning? This session is practical and encompasses how-to’s, examples, resources and advice from TEDx veteran, Dr. Sara Duvall, Curator, TEDxYouth@AnnArbor. Come and learn this innovative strategy for project based and digital age learning. TEDx (9-12+) and TEDED (K-8) - we cover it all!

Long Description/Scheduler Description:
What if one strategic unit of study could propose driving questions that 1) lead students to in-depth inquiry based on their own interests, 2) provide a framework for the practice of 21st century fluencies, and 3) engage higher order thinking skills? What if that unit of study could keep our students and patrons in the transformative zone of Ruben Puentedura's SAMR Model? What if that same unit could address ALL of the ISTE Technology Standards for Students 2016 (Empowered Lerner, Digital Citizen, Knowledge Creator, Innovative Designer, Computational Thinker, Creative Communicator and Global Collaborator) for all members of the community? TEDxYouth@AnnArbor has accomplished all this and more – outside of the classroom. The purpose of this dynamic session is to 1) introduce educators and librarians to TEDx and TEDED – independently organized TED events and clubs, 2) model how youth driven organizations can engage and captivate students, teachers, parents and communities, and 3) present a strategy to develop leadership and independent thinking in students of all ages. Educators and librarians alike will leave the session with multiple resources and supports to replicate such events, with the inspiration to initiate such programs for youth in their cities, and with the confidence to accomplish what before seemed impossible.
