TEDxNorwichED 2016-  Thinking Differently.

The first TEDxNorwichED took place in March 2016 and was a phenomenal success.    Our theme was ​Thinking Differently ​ and we explored different ways in which we could think differently about education.

People attended – both physically and online from across the UK and even further afield, and the buzz following the event was substantial

A wide range of people shared their ‘ideas worth sharing’- from teachers, head teachers, academics right the way to stunt-men and financial traders- we heard a range of views, ideas and thoughts- you can catch up on all the talks below.

Alternatively why not watch the highlights video which gives a good flavour of what we got up to!
