TED Talks have featured “ideas worth spreading” from the world’s most notable innovators and speakers on technology, entertainment and design. Now, Canyons School District is hosting Utah’s first TEDx event for teachers.
TEDxCSDTeachers is part of the TEDx program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience, which includes live speakers and recorded TED Talks. The TEDxCSDTeachers event is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 8, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Butler Middle School. Space is limited to 100 attendees, based on an application process. Priority will be given to Canyons teachers, for whom substitutes will be provided.
Canyons is accepting presenter proposals now through Tuesday, Sept. 24. Topics must promote college- and career-readiness, best practices, and high-quality educators. The following are some dates to remember:
– Sept. 24 – Call for presenters closes
– Oct. 21 Deadline for attendee applications.
– Nov. 8 – TEDxCSDTeachers event, 8 a.m. 3:30 p.m., Butler Middle School
TEDx aims to give communities the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level, according to its Web site. TEDx events are independently planned and coordinated.
