Over the past semester, my students have been working on their 20 Time projects and have been doing some amazing work (Check out their blogs here). As part of their project, they would be giving a TEDx-esque style talk. What they didn't know was that I was working on my own 20 Time project.
Last week, I received word that my application to hold a TEDx Youth Event had been approved! Instead of giving TEDx-esque talks, my students will have a chance to give a real TEDx talk. I am beyond excited and my students are pumped!
TEDxGrossePointeSouth will be held Saturday June 7 from Noon - 6:00PM (Tentatively) at Grosse Pointe South High School in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. It will feature students from the high school who want to share their ideas with the world.
I never thought I would be doing something like this, but my students really inspired me to try something I've never done, even if I failed. I've learned plenty during one semester of 20 Time and I can't wait to see what the second half of the year has in store for me.
Stay tuned for updates!
Thanks to everyone for their support with 20 Time.
