View TEDxNYED presentations with NYCSLA & HVLA

NYSCLA and HVLA (Hudson Valley Library Association) are gathering to view and discuss TEDxNYED conference presentations on Wednesday, April 28, 4:30-6pm, at the Collegiate School, 260 West 78th Street, between Broadway and West End Avenue, in Manhattan.

Please r.s.v.p. to mckinleylibrary@gmail.com if you plan on attending, so that we can plan accordingly. Feel free to invite a teacher/administrator from your school.

TEDxNYED, an all-day conference examining the role of new media and technology in shaping the future of education, was held in New York City on Saturday, March 6, 2010. TEDxNYED brought together leading educators, innovators, and idealists together to share their vision of education. The conference is a platform for administrators, teachers, and those passionate about education to connect, learn from these extraordinary speakers, and spread their ideas on how new media and technology are shaping the future of education. Each talk is 18 minutes long. We will view a selection of them for about 45 minutes and then allow time for discussion and mingling.

    Must see. For those that didn’t attend, and while we are at the end, looking back on the year almost passed, to fuel yourself for the upcoming June planning, please watch. Cheryl made a very thoughtful selection. Thanks again, Cheryl. To boot, it was our first joint HVLA/NYCSLA event!!

    Thanks, Sara. I hope that librarians will share some of these talks with their colleagues and administrators. Dan Meyer is the math teacher that I wish I had had in school!

    The TEDxNYED conference was an extraordinary introduction to the new media and technology that will shape our future. The speakers were outstanding. Reminding us that there are many lessons to learn about how a real field of dreams comes into being. “Little Gifts of Sustainable Contentment,” a book by C.J. Good, mimics this philosophy. We follow the course of our own happiness.
