"Mattering" examines the idea of relevance and real world learning in education. Through examples from his own work with schools, such as his InStill LIfe project, Nikos invites us to consider how we can move learning towards a more meaningful experience for students and teachers alike, and to a day where students stop asking "What does school have to do with anything?"
Nikos Theodosakis is an advocate for meaningful education. Founder of the OliveUs Education Society, he is the architect of the InStill Life, Preserving Your Culture and The Director in the Classroom projects. His book "The Director in the Classroom: How Filmmaking Inspires Learning" examines connected learning through digital media production in the classroom and is a resource for teachers around the world.
He works with schools and organizations to help grow meaningful learning projects that connect and matter to students, teachers and communities.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
