TEDEd Club @ Al Qamar Academy

Thrilled to announce the start of the Al Qamar Academy's TEDEd Club as by Allah's grace our application to TED was accepted.

Am also very grateful to Jb M.G  Dawood Miankhan Sahib and the management of Quaide Milleth International Academy of Media Studies (QIAMS) for kindly giving permission for Al Qamar TEDEd Club to learn video recording and editing - skills they would need for creating the final TED talk.

11 students from Grades 4-6 have signed up as members.  The first session introduced students to TED talks. They viewed two fascinating talks and got to brainstorm what makes a good talk, what are great ideas worth sharing and what prevents ideas from spreading.  The club members got a chance to practice their public speaking skills by giving one minute talks on why they want to join the club.  I was impressed at the self confidence and spoken skills of the children.

Looking forward to the rest of the sessions where children will decide a topic for a talk, do research, write the speech and finally record.
