Theme: Leading Learning - Global to Student Levels

Norrköping, E

Very much of the debate on schools is about What? and How?, and the answers to Why? are often implicitely assumed to be unchanged and agreed upon.
The aim of our TEDxNorrkopingED event(s) is to touch the Why questions, and use the outcome when approaching the Hows and Whats. The recorded talks from our events, together with selected TED Talks, can be used at discussions and meetings later at the differents schools.
Hopefully the ideas spread at our events will trigger some of this Why-thinking and encourage the use of ideas and experience also from other part of the world.
