SPRING and FALL 2017
We are offering a VIRTUAL HOMESCHOOL TEDEd Club in the Spring and a LOCAL Club in the Fall. Please contact us for more information!
This is a FREE Club for homeschoolers who want to learn how to create their own TEDx style talk. We will divide our time together into 3 months. Students will be required to do their own preparation for their own talk leading up to the 3rd month. In class, however, we will be watching TEDx videos and discussing topics based on these videos.
September class time: facilitator leads discussions
October class time: students lead discussions

What are the goals of a TED-Ed Club?
●To stimulate and celebrate creative ideas put forth by students from all over the world.
●To work with a generation of problem solvers, critical thinkers and innovators to make the world a better place.
●To connect groups of students of all different backgrounds around the world.
●To provide a web platform where student ideas can be featured and shared.
●To support students in developing presentation literacy and public speaking skills so their ideas can be more easily seen, understood, shared and acted upon.
●To make an idea—developed and presented by a student—a valuable reference point on a resume, college application or in a job interview.
