Hosting a TEDxYouthday event is a terrific way to bring an experiential, connected, and authentic learning project to your students. In this conversation we will share ideas with colleagues from other schools who either have hosted a TEDx event or wish to learn more about how to host one.

This site will help you organize your plan for the weekend and provide the relevant information for each conversation. After signing in, search through the conversations below and mark the sessions you are interested in to populate your personal schedule on the right (or below if on your mobile phone).

Creativity -- we know it when we see it, but how do we assess learning and improvements in cognitive skills including self awareness, rationality, and open-minded thinking? This conversation will explore possible measures and work toward framing a valuable rubric for assessment.
