Partnership For Innovation in Education Named a TEDxCincinnati Ambassador
CINCINNATI – (April 5, 2016) Partnership For Innovation in Education (PIE), a Cincinnati-based non-profit organization that develops transformational educational tools helping to prepare local students for the 21st century workforce and success in the global marketplace, has been named a TEDxCincinnati Ambassador.
Through this partnership, PIE’s students and community partners will be featured and their experiences with the PIE program will be amplified through TEDxCincinnati and TEDxCincinnati Youth events and opportunities.
“We are excited about this opportunity and being able to share the ideas of our local students and community partners with the TEDxCincinnati community. Not only will this be a significant opportunity for PIE to share our work with local schools, but it also gives our students and community partners a chance to learn and be inspired by other leaders and creative thinkers in our region,” said Mary Welsh Schlueter, PIE CEO.
TEDxCincinnati provides a platform for innovators, entrepreneurs, leaders and now students to share their ideas. The TEDx platform gives Cincinnati a way to share its voice and the voice of our students with each other and the world. “I feel incredibly inspired to be a part of an amazing community that is interested in exchanging ideas,” said Jami Edelheit, Director of TEDxCincinnati. “Students are eager to participate in all aspects of TEDxCincinnati Youth. We will involve students in planning, production, speaking and performing. They will also have the opportunity to participate at the Main Stage Events in innovation alley where they will have hands on experiences. PIE will be participating in identifying students who have talents that we can share. We will work with PIE in taking TEDxCincinnati into the classrooms to show students ideas that they may not know existed through TED talks and our experts.”
