Our second TEDxEastsidePrep was held on May 18th, 2012 at Central Cinema in Seattle, WA. Thanks to everyone who made this event a high-energy, fun, and inspirational day. We appreciate your presence and your support and hope to see you again next year!
The theme of TEDxEastsidePrep 2012 was Evolution of Instruction—Designing Experience. Our audience and consisted of a diverse of group of leaders, stakeholders and entrepreneurs in the worlds of education, business, technology and cognitive science.
Our inquiry was driven by these guiding questions:
What could education look like in the next 5-20 years? What can be done to optimally craft an engaging, consuming, educational experience?
- What components are essential to a well-designed human experience? (in education?, in work?, in life?)
- How could the educational experience (in school and outside of school) of young people be reimagined to be a more engaging, immersive experience that leads to a desire for lifetime learning? What can schools learn from other areas (business, research, arts, craftsmen, writers, etc.) to improve their product?
