CLARKSTOWN NORTH HIGH SCHOOL TO HOST ITS FIRST-EVER TEDx EVENT

More than a dozen students and faculty members of Clarkstown North High School will host and speak at the schools’ first-ever TEDxCHSNED, an exchange of ideas and vision of education in the 21st Century. The event, called “Education and Inspiration,” will be held at Clarkstown North High School on Friday, May 31 from 7 to 9 p.m. and is free to the general public. “Education and Inspiration” will also be live streamed [URL to be set by District].

“The idea that students and their teachers will share the same stage as equal partners in a conversation about education is thrilling,” said event organizer and Clarkstown North social studies teacher, Paul Diamond. “I look forward to an exciting evening of ideas and conversation and I hope this is the beginning of an annual 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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.)
