Given I'm married to an educator, have a daughter just beginning her teaching career interesting in talking shop and spending a good chunk of time online with educators it's no surprise that a day learning and in conversation with many folks outside of education is a breath of fresh air.
I was honored to be part of TEDx Saskatoon. I spent the last week engrossed in trying not to suck and I think I at least accomplished that goal. I was also happy to give my talk in the first set which allowed me to totally focus on the ideas and talks of the other speakers as well as engage in some pretty interesting conversations with strangers. I heart strangers.
The organizers put on a first class day. All the details were covered and they represented TED and Saskatoon extremely well. The volunteer hours to put on an event like this is pretty significant and you can't help but be impressed with the dedication.
While all the talks offered something, let me share a few highlights.
