Description of Club: After our success in the Primary Debating League over the last 2 years we have decided to develop a Ted Ed Club in Powerstown ETNS. This programme, which supports presentation literacy in schools, has already been embraced by hundreds of educators and students around the globe and will allow for a larger number of participants in the club.

What are the goals of a TED-Ed Club?!
• To stimulate and celebrate creative ideas put forth by students from all over the world.
• To work with a generation of problem solvers, critical thinkers and innovators to make the world a better place
• To connect groups of students of all different backgrounds around the world.
• To be a platform for student ideas.
• To support students in developing presentation and public speaking skills, so that their ideas can be more easily seen, understood, shared and acted upon.
• To make an idea—developed, presented and recorded by a student—a valuable reference point on a resume, college application or in a job interview.

What do meetings look like?

  • Students watching and vigorously discussing TED Talks and TED-Ed Lessons
  • The signature activity of a TED-Ed Club is students sharing, debating and discussing the ideas presented in TED Talks and TED-Ed Lessons.
  • Students developing and presenting their own ideas through TED-style talks
  • The TED-Ed Club meeting structure is designed to support students in taking influence from
  • TED speakers, and ultimately developing and presenting big ideas based on their own passions.
  • Students will also gain skills in storytelling/storyboarding, production, and creating visuals that communicate their ideas clearly.
  • TED-Ed is committed to celebrating great student ideas by sharing student presentations and stories with the world via the award-winning web platform, ed.ted.com.

Connect with TED-Ed Clubs around the world

  • TED-Ed Clubs represent thousands of student groups from around the world actively pursuing and presenting their ideas.
  • When you join PETNS TED-Ed Club you’ll be connected to groups around the world.
  • If children see others engaging in an activity that excites them, students are encouraged to adopt it for our own TED-Ed Club.

Students creating TED-Ed style animations

  • Another increasingly important skill set is the ability to illustrate one’s big ideas. Animation is a fantastic and fun medium for acquiring and exercising this artistic skill. TED-Ed Club members will be supported in developing a variety of animations skills including storyboarding, character design, stop motion animation and visualizing abstract ideas.
Number of places available in club: 10

 

Live Laugh Learn – Drama Specialist After School Clubs

Thursdays 2.10pm – 3pm: 1st – 6th Class

Classes start on Thursday 10th September.

The fee for each term is €50. Each term consists of 8 weeks.

What is Speech and Drama?

What is Speech & Drama?​ Speech & Drama classes have transformed greatly from the era of “this, that, these and those. That’s the way the ‘th’ goes!”. Speech and Drama is now much more concerned with the inner development of the student whilst concentrating on disciplines such as improvisation technique, mime, the spoken word, voice production, breath control, confidence building, the ability to emphatise/sympathise and the ability to de-centre through fun, interactive and engaging lessons.
