A group of librarians from NYCSLA and HVLA got together at the Collegiate School on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, to view a selection of talks from the recent TEDxNYED Conference. We watched presentations by Andy Carvin, Michael Wesch, and Dan Meyer. These and other talks can be accessed via tedxnyed.com. One of the questions posed was: How can the innovation and idealism espoused by these innovative educators exist within the tight constraints of accountability and assessment that are driving our profession? It was a great opportunity to have librarians from both the private and public education sectors together and concerned about many of the same issues. Thanks to librarian Maggie Dixon at Collegiate for hosting this great event.
