Last weekend (19th March 2016) I had the great pleasure of giving a TEDx talk at TEDxNorwichEd, the first TED education event in the UK for 4 and a half years.
It was a really great and interesting day with a wide range of talks addressing many issues in Education. Some I agreed with, some made me question many aspects of Education, and some I vehemently and ardently disagree with. I’d encourage you to check out as many of the talks as you can as they all have interesting things to say, just search TEDxNorwichED in YouTube to see the full list.
There were great debates and discussions with attendees from all walks of life throughout the day, and it’d be great to see that discussion and debate continue.
My talk can be found here or below. I’m ridiculously proud of it, and I’d love for you to take 9 minutes and watch it.
I also had a lively debate after the talk with Jon Briggs best known as the male voice of Siri! We had a good chat about why I’m so against ‘digital natives’ as a term. Unfortunately that wasn’t included in the video, but it was really fun, and I’d love to continue the debate!
