The evolution of ideas is in the hands of today's youth. Are we using all the tools possible to convey to them all the knowledge they need? Evolution rewards awareness.
Robert Romano -- the CEO of BookheadEd Learning, publisher of StudySync -- will take the stage at TEDxNapaValley.com on Sunday, Sept. 11 to offer, as TED says, some ideas worth spreading.
Drawing inspiration from Einstein, Tagore, and Woody Allen, Romano's playful presentation will blend traditional teaching of the great works with engaging technology and thoughtful entertainment. Romano will provide those on hand with an experiential moment, an opportunity to witness the StudySync method in action.
WHAT: An independently organized TED event, the inaugural TEDxNapaValley will tackle the theme,“Empowering Leaders at Every Level.” TEDx is aimed at dynamic thinkers, positive reinforcers, determined citizens, those searching for answers to questions never asked, and those willing to question the answers already given. The event will bring together inspiring teachers, engaging locals, community leaders, innovative individuals, and those with a sense of humor.
