Hey ladies! I found this really cool video from TedTalk on how the current school system has become obselete. Check it out, let me know what you think. And, while you are at it pat yourself on the back for being a trendsetter!

 This is the SOLE Challenge 

THE CHALLENGE

Part experiment, part contest — your challenge is to test the SOLE method with students in your school, home or after-school program and to share what you learn with TED in the form of a 500-1000 word blog post. What was your experience like in setting up SOLE? Tell us about your SOLE adventure and the students who participated. What were the challenges, how did you overcome them and what did you learn? How do you believe SOLE can be used at your school in the future?

Up to three winning submissions selected by Sugata and the TED Prize team will win a weekend trip for you and your child to attend TEDYouth 2013.


HOW TO ENTER

Step 1: Download the SOLE toolkit and agree to the official contest rules. (Note: TED and The Huffington Post will only contact you about of the SOLE Challenge, and will not share your personal information with any third parties.)

Step 2: Create a SOLE environment in collaboration with your local school, home, or after school program.

Step 3: Submit your 500-1000 word blog post to SOLEChallenge@TED.com by 9AM ET, Friday, April 12th, 2013 on what you've learned from the process and any photos that document or support your piece.

Step 4: Use the feedback form to let us know more about your experience with the SOLE.

Step 5: The TED Prize team will select up to 3 winning blog posts (based on the evaluation criteria below) to feature in a future edition of TEDWeekends on The Huffington Post.
