After a two year hiatus, TEDxSFED has resurfaced as a salon series. 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.
In a series of four salons over the next twelve months, TEDxSFED will focus on one theme – Validate All Learners.
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.
Our first salon, on February 21st, will feature Minnie Bredouw, who will explore the following – what it means to validate all learners
