Once upon a school, one-on-one attention, and 100% inspiration

We can all make our community schools and children within them healthier and happier “one human interaction at a time.” Watch this video and be inspired as you learn what Dave Eggers and thousands of other adults have done across the world to help children in their local neighborhoods learn to love writing (and homework too)!

I found this talk on the website Once Upon a School–a site where you can:

  1. Find an idea to work with a local school
  2. Be inspired by projects happening now
  3. Tell a story about your own projects (that have helped children in your local schools)

Here are some projects ideas for your school and classroom! Take a look, implement an idea and tell the world about it!

PS For more inspiring talks, check out TED:

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).

This site makes the best talks and performances from TED available to the public, for free. More than 200 talks from our archive are now available, with more added each week. These videos are released under a Creative Commons license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.
