On March 9, 2017 CDS will host TEDxCarrollwoodDaySchool. The theme of the event is New Perspectives. The event will include student and community member speakers who will spark new ideas and ways of thought. Students will take part in engaging activities based on speaker talks throughout the day.
Sabrina McCartney, IB MYP Coordinator and HS Humanities teacher is the organizer of this event for CDS along with Co-Organizer, Jenna Cohen, CDS MS Language A teacher, and Nancy Hsu, CDS HS Language Acquisition teacher.
This year, all CDS middle school students will attend this event. All CDS parents are invited to attend the TEDxCarrollwoodDaySchool event. We strongly encourage middle school parents to attend, so they can continue the conversations from the day at home. There is no charge to attend this event, but reservations are required.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast event in nearby Whistler. The annual TEDGlobal conference will be held this October in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
