TEDxRedmond – first TEDx ‘for kids by kids’ is a success! (VIDEO)

TEDxRedmond was a great success on Saturday, Sept 18. Over 400 young people attended and were treated to an amazing lineup of accomplished speakers all under the age of 16. The Twittersphere was lit up with praise for the inspirational messages from each and every speaker. We at Generation YES are very proud to have co-sponsored this first ever TEDx  “for kids by kids.”

The event was streamed live and recorded, and as those become available, we’ll share!

I am an adult TEDster and I use it all the time in my class and ask my kids to go search for what interests them when they have time. I now have 6 active teen Tedsters, and I say WAY TO GO! To bring all that is out there to these children, may just spark an interest in something that they may never have thought of before.

Even though I agree with all who stated the children needed to GO OUTSIDE and from ONE box to another, it is events like these that will help form our future. WAY to go TED!

I'm sorry to be a wet blanket....as a teacher, I wish kids would get off the darn computers after school. They are becoming over weight, anti social little creatures. If nothing else, read a book! What is so important for a 10 year old to sit in front of a computer?

Ok – cool little cats.... but when will they get off the couch and play outside to get a breath of fresh air? All I see is that they go from one box to another – another little window draining and training their minds.
