TED Ed Club at GVES by Al Elliott
I've started a TED Ed Club this year at Green Valley Elementary. I am excited to have so many fifth graders sign up. I will be delivering my own TED Talk on March 12 at TEDxBirmingham so I am especially excited about facilitating the club at our school. There is a process to delivering a TED-styled talk and to be able to share my experience with students in this way is a nice change of pace for both the students participating and myself as an educator.
"TED-Ed Clubs aims to introduce a school-friendly framework that supports students in meeting regularly to discuss, pursue and present their big ideas in the form of short TED-style Talks. We hope to celebrate exceptional student ideas by potentially featuring them at the annual TEDYouth conference or TEDxYouth events." - From TED Ed Club Website
