Students in Schenectady at The Brown School with Dr.James are curating their own licensed live stream event of TEDWOMEN as it takes place in Palm Springs. Emceeing and organizing this event is a wonderful introduction before organizing their own TEDx event at which they speak at year’s end!
TEDx in the classroom certainly helps students to access their voices by guiding them to the TEDx stage, but it also helps them access their voices and sense of themselves as autonomous decision makers because they audition and curate and generally work together with the adult TEDx speakers who take to the stage with them.
