TEDxYouth@Columbia Online

Register here to attend our TEDxLive event on Saturday, August 15, 2020 from 1 PM to 3:30 PM EST. – https://tedxyouthcolumbia.com/online/

Our theme, based on the 2020 TED conference’s, is “Uncharted.” A sneak peek into some of our topics:

Where can we find beauty in this anxious time?

What could a human-less future look like?

How do you take charge of your own life path?

During this event, we’re also hosting educators-only discussion rooms to provide resources for teachers seeking to take action on school reopenings, e-learning, and student safety.

“Every kid needs a champion”

Rita Pierson, a teacher for 40 years, once heard a colleague say, “They don’t pay me to like the kids.” Her response: “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like.'” A rousing call to educators to believe in their students and actually connect with them on a real, human, personal level.

On Wednesday, August 12, 2020, from 11:00 am – 11:15 am, we’ll be discussing this TED Talk: Every kid needs a champion. (Click the link to view the seven-minute and twenty-five-second video.)
