TEDxAFS-Christy Green If Schools Looked More Like Google

What would happen to education if our schools looked a little more like Google? What if they espoused Google's principles; if they were information driven, connected, a platform for collaboration, with free (and nutritious) lunch, an 80/20 rule and a "Don't Be Evil" code of conduct? Christy Green is a technology teacher at a public school in Medford, NJ. She has conducted many workshops for colleagues about technology and is an advocate for placing more advanced technology in the hands of our students. In 2008 Christy took part in the Google Teacher Academy in New York City. 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)
