TEDxISL - Janet Ungrin - Five Reasons to Go Outside and Play

Janet Ungrin is a Canadian teacher with experience in Ontario, New Zealand, Mexico, and Europe. In her career she has taught Physical and Health Education, Science, Math, Outdoor Education, and the Humanities, mostly at the secondary level. She enjoys sports of all varieties, paddling through moose infested swamps, and rolling down grassy hills. She is also a bit of a nerd, and freely admits her favourite activity is curling up on the couch with a good book (the old fashioned paper kind). Janet's interest in outdoor play comes from a childhood filled with "lion hunts", tree forts, and snowball fights, and in recent years has been influenced by the works of Richard Louv, Dr. John J. Ratey, Dr. Stuart Brown, and Tim Gill.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)
