    About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)

    The inquiry model is such a refreshing perspective.

    Kath Murdoch, your life-long passion for teaching and learning is inspirational. Thank you for your 'humble' yet well-informed and truly inspiring words. I never get tired of listening to you speak about Inquiry. It has been 21 years since I started my journey in education and still feel extremely fortunate to have started that journey with the idea of inquiry learning deeply embedded in my core belief system. All thanks to you. You have such passion and you are such a great speaker. You are as always, true and real and we can all learn a lot from that. Thank you for all that you have contributed to education.

    We'd love for classrooms to give us time to ummm but our syllabus lays out a specific content to be covered and our superiors are asking us for data that shows learning is taking place. How do we measure learning in the inquiry based classroom? For all the advancements in thinking, most educations systems are grossly decadent. Not fun for children or teachers!
