Head of School Robert Brisk P ‘13 ‘15 presented at TEDxColumbus in November. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading and TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The theme for 2016: TEDxColumbus was Risk and Brisk shared his experience in developing a method for measuring student engagement, or love of learning, so that schools can create more dynamic educational experiences for all children.
“Students are the experts on whether they are challenged and love it,” he said. “They are our partners, and we need to listen carefully.”
