“The appetite for innovation is growing, and all of these practices we’ve been talking about for the last 10 years are becoming new models for schools.”
- Milton Chen, author of Education Nation and senior fellow and executive director, emeritus at The George Lucas Educational Foundation at last night’s TedxSFED kick-off event. Check out the events listings to find out more about upcoming talks, and save February 22 on your calendar to attend the KQED Education/MindShift-hosted “Speaker Search” event.
Education advocates and innovators are gathering tomorrow evening, Wednesday, Jan. 19 at the TEDxSFED kick-off event in San Francisco. It’s the first in a series of talks and gatherings about innovations in education that lead up to the main event on April 9.
TEDxSFED will showcase a mosaic of learning paradigms with speakers who are re-imagining education both in and out of the classroom. With the theme, mashEDup: re-imagine education, TEDxSFED will highlight new and different ways to approach learning in an effort to help change the status of today’s education system.
MindShift and KQED Education are proud to be co-conspirators of TEDxSFED. I’ll be at tomorrow’s shindig, looking forward to seeing Milton Chen speak. Chen is the author of Education Nation, which he talked to me about a few months ago.
It’s all happening at Hub SoMa, 901 Mission St. Suite 105, in San Francisco. Register here.
I’ll be writing much more about all the events in the next few months.
In the meantime, I’d love to meet any MindShift readers in the vicinity.
