Amplifying Student Voices: Here’s why the WOW MEET 2018 by TED-Ed CLUB Ludhiana is a must attend!
How many times have we seen TED Talks ( either in person or on YouTube), and thought. ‘Wow, I want to be there on that stage’ ? Truth be told, we have wished for that numerous times. Now while we were growing up we didn’t have the platforms but things are completely different today. This is where TED-Ed Club Ludhiana comes in. Before going further in to the WOW Meet 2018 let’s first discuss what TED-Ed is :
What is a TED-Ed club?
TED-Ed, is a way to celebrate the ideas of students around the globe. Through TED-Ed Clubs, students — with the help of an adult facilitator, (Reetika is the facilitator for TED-Ed Ludhiana) — identify and research the ideas that matter to them most. And while TED-Ed Clubs offer students the opportunity to connect with others who, like them, are unabashedly curious about the world, TED-Ed Clubs are also about presentation literacy. TED-Ed Clubs offer students a hands-on opportunity to work on the storytelling and communication skills that will be vital, no matter what career path they end up strolling down. And TED-Ed Club Ludhiana ensures that it keeps on providing students with as many opportunities as possible, the latest being an internship program for school and college students where through the platform of TED-Ed.
What will the students learn from the internship?
The internship is an amalgamation of practical and theoretical knowledge where students through workshops and on ground experience learn offline marketing and digital marketing ,publicity, leadership, sales, Public relations, brand management. And they get certifications, letter of recommendations and real time experience to show for it. We, as Gedhi Route, took two workshops with the students — one on Social Media Marketing and another on Digital Marketing to give them an insight into how marketing in corporates and for brands really works.
But the agenda of TED-Ed clubs is primarily providing learning opportunities not just for students but for everyone. Truth be told, aren’t we all students at the end of day? And this is why the WOW Meet 2018 ( World of Words) is important for all of us to attend.
