My Very First TEDx Talk: It’s MY Education!

It’s MY Education!

Timmy SullivanOn March 23, 2015, Burlington High School was the site of the first ever TEDxYouth@BHS TEDx conference. An event co-created by Nikhil Thakkar and Jenn Scheffer, the TEDxYouth@BHS conference brought students, educators, and professional speakers from across the country to present their ideas worth spreading.

In my talk, “It’s MY Education,” I discuss the need for public education reform, the changing role of today’s educator, and the benefits of creating personalized learning experiences for students. Sharing my passion for languages, culture, and communication, advocate for integrating technology across the curriculum to expand the walls of the classroom and to further personalize the learning experience.

My talk can be found in the YouTube embed below, as well as the manuscript, just below the video. Feedback, as always, is welcome!
