HELLENIC AMERICAN UNION: SPEAKER AT TEDXYOUTH. EMPOWER YOUTH, REINVENT LEARNING
Themis Gkion spoke about “knowing what is important to you” at TEDxYouth @ Hellenic American Union.
TEDxYouth@HAU is an event modelled after the TEDx conferences, aimed solely at young people and focused on learning – the learning that is done beyond classrooms, blackboards and conventional lessons. Learning as a result of an experiential and interactive experience, learning designed to engage, entertain, inspire, spark curiosity and encourage young adults to explore and discover beyond the boundaries of their school curriculum. An alternative method of learning that seeks to involve students in the learning process, which is based on the openness of educational institutions and the nurturing of creativity.
The aim of TEDxYouth@HAU is to bring together people with interesting ideas that will stimulate the minds of teenagers, encourage them to actively participate in the learning process and give them a new drive and motivation. In other words, it brings students and their teachers in contact with people who present them with a new perspective on the educational process and show them what they can achieve if they dare think outside the box.
