TEDxSFED Salon Series

In a series of four salons, TEDxSFED will focus onĀ one theme – Validate All Learners.

Each salon will have one speaker who will address the need to support learners of all styles as well as an activity afterward to dive deeper into the idea that was just presented.

This series is meant to explore the fact that the work being accomplished in many industries can translate into the world of education, and in turn ensure that all learners are validated and can thrive.

TEDxSFED Salon – February 21, 2013

Our first TEDxSFED salon will address what it means to validate all learners.
