In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The Story of Academia

This is the story of Academia; the story of our profound guiding philosophy. A story of how a carefully controlled learning environment, with the right guide to show you the way, can take you on a journey to a future that feels transcendental.

Academic success is an important part of the story as it demonstrates the quintessential educational triumvirate of skills, content, and application. Yet a more fundamental question is: what kind of adult do you want to grow up to be? Intelligent, thoughtful, and inspired to create change in the world. Expressive and able to defend a position clearly. Self-aware and richly endowed with social and cultural capital. These are the qualities we hope that our students grow to embody.

For us, learning results in the creation of meaning, a personal identity, and a philosophy of life. This is education, redefined.

Re-Order The Digital Landscape: David Shing at TEDxUTSC

Born and raised in Australia, David Shing (or better known as Shingy), has done his fair share of traveling before settling in New York.
