Matt Giammarino

The TEDxUBC team is very pleased to announce TED Talk #9, by Matt Giammarino, a true innovator in personalized learning.  Matt has grown a tutoring business into an alternative education organization that keeps charting new ground.  His TED Talk is sure to help us all remix our current views on education. Matt is a man of many hats. One part educational researcher, one part entrepreneur, one part teacher, Matt spends his days as co-owner and teacher at BrainBoost Education — a broad based education and technology company based out of Vancouver – and his (other) days as a researcher who studies how environments and personal psychological factors interact during educational experiences. He recently completed his masters thesis on ‘Mathematical Flexibility” with honors, and he generally loves to get his nerd on.

What's a remix?

In music: combining two or more songs to make a new one

In art: Combining two or more sources and ideas to make something new

In education: combining a variety of educational experiences to come up with a new approach to learning.

What's education?

Education does not = School

You own your education

Don't wait for the next opportunity

Remixing is an incremental sport

This is the one opportunity you have

Fertile ground in BC.

22,000 students get education through distance learning

BC's home-schooling laws allow parents to educate their kids as they see fit and re-integrate them in schools at the level they fit based on knowledge and abilities

Fertile time

We need a distributed network of educational resources and experiences

How?

In the town square

My story

Started in phylosophy

Switched to economy

Got dissilusioned in the state of arts'

Finally I decided to learn psychology

Teachers I met are passionate

The stories I have heard underground were amazing

Implications

For Parents and Spouses

For Students

Focus on flow

For Citizens

Sum of individual choices = Out collective Faith

If we own our individual choices and remix with the possibilities and opportunities out there there is no end
