Alright y'all, this officially marks the final update from yours truly as we head into the last week of TED Talk prep and in fact, TED Talks start this Thursday with our brave guinea pig volunteer, Emily Badgley.
I'll keep this short and to the point as you all know the drill by now (Here is the screencast of me explaining these items if you'd like to listen along):
1. Want some good news? Check out John Krazinski's most recent episode of "Some Good News" with special guests Oprah, Steven Spielberg, John Stewart and Malala. (This just so happens to not only be his graduation edition BUT is also another example of how you could format your TED Talk video!)
2. Keep up with this week's daily agenda assignments, which mostly involve you finishing your TED Talk, doing peer critiques, and getting your ducks in a row!
3. Create the google hangout invitation and invite people to your talk! Link it on THIS DOCUMENT and send a calendar invite to the following people. Make sure your email includes a polite salutation, the time and date of your TED Talk, your research question, and a brief description of what they can expect at the TED Talk.
4. Review the panel schedule and expectations! When the days come for your paneling block, use THIS Schedule DOCUMENT to find the link to the google hangouts for the people for whom you are paneling.
A note on paneling: The paneling schedule document contains, first, the expectations for your role as a panelist during TED Talks, and second, your scheduled blocks for paneling. Please read the first page completely and then find your name on the schedule. You should see your name THREE TIMES. One for when you are delivering your talk and TWO times for when you are paneling.
Scheduling Conflict? If there is a SERIOUS conflict with your paneling schedule, your only option is to ask a classmate to switch with you, as long as it doesn't break the paneling block rules. When you've found a classmate to switch with you, you can then email me with your reason for switching) and CC the classmate with whom you are switching.
5. REQUIRED ATTENDANCE: Attend the final ALL 12th grade conference where we will review TED talk schedule and panel expectations AND watch Emily Badgley's TED Talk as she bravely provides y'all with an example! Thursday, May 14th at 10:00 am via this google hangout link: https://meet.google.com/uvc-pppd-syt
Now get out there and CRUSH your TED Talk!
Yeeeeoooooop! Can't wait to see all your amazing TED Talk performances.
