TEDxSelfDesignHigh - Brent Cameron - 05/01/10

Brent Cameron Principal of SelfDesign Learning Community (Co-founder Wondertree, Virtual High and SelfDesign Learning Community and author of the SelfDesign book) Brent was inspired by his daugther's natural ability to learn from the day of her birth in 1977. In 1983 when she walked out of school after two weeks Brent and Ilana began an experiment that became Wondertree. For the next 13 years they worked together including many other people to develop a number of programs and to develop a body of work to describe a methodology of SelfDesign. Brent has been working with Wondertree for 21 years and working to sustain the rights of children to be legitimate in their desires to design their own learning path. Brent has created many workshops and presentations that feature multimedia presentations of the Wondertree experience. His focus is on understanding who we really really are and on how we naturally learn as an enthusiastic process. His current passion is to work with communities who are planning sustainable learning communities. He is consulting to a project in Colorado called VISION, and he has recently finished writing a book on his discoveries in SelfDesign.

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)
