Angelos Patsias is a young educator whose aim is to launch various innovative activities that will help create a new educational system that will meet the specific needs of each and every place. In his inspiring talk explains his revolutionary choice to initiate the "School of Nature and Colours" project, an educational role model of creative self-management, in which pupils are taught beyond the curriculum - among other things - how to sing and dance, stage theatrical plays, raise funds for their school through a vegetable garden and make their activities and campaigns known to the public through their blog and online channel.Angelos Patsias was born in 1985 in Athens and grew up in Drama. After completing his studies in Primary Level Education in Alexandroupoli, he moved to Rethymno, Crete. For the last two years he has been the teacher and director of a primary school with only four teachers to cover the needs of six classes located in the mountainside of Crete, in a remote, rural village named Fourfoura.About TEDx:In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
