TEDxTeachCompassion will be hold on June 11, 2011 at the Craneway Pavillion in Richmond, California. Attendants will learn about compassion in education–why it’s important, how we can nurture it, and why it’s essential to preparing our students for life in the 21st century.
The conference will be held in the San Francisco Bay Area on June 11, 2011 at the beautiful and historic Craneway Pavillion.
The theme of the conference is compassion in education–why it’s important, how we can nurture it, and why it’s essential to preparing our students for life in the 21st century.
The conference will explore the essential place that compassion holds throughout K-12 education. What will make it truly groundbreaking is its fusion of education and cutting-edge science. The day will offer illuminating scientific discoveries, practical strategies for building compassion, and plenty of inspiration—not just from educators but from entrepreneurs, doctors, artists, and other agents of social change. Some speakers may draw upon the latest research from neuroscience and developmental psychology to show how schools can nurture compassion; others may reveal how compassion builds bridges to faraway people and places.
Our audience will consist of key players in education and science: classroom teachers, psychologists, parents, neuroscientists, policy makers, artists, and other innovators from the Bay Area and beyond.
