TEDxYMCAAcademy- Kristina Farentino- A New Model of Learning

Educator Kristina Farentino speaks eloquently on educational change: "Reform, revolution, empowering change...these are all phrases that have been used while talking about change in k-12 education. Yet, we still have not moved far enough towards a model of learning that allows all students in our system to learn, to love learning, and to grow in cognitive, emotional and physical ways. We can and must create an infrastructure that achieves these goals, but only if we harness the knowledge from all fields of research and stop trying to improve the lock-step, classroom model." 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)
