Craig Zimmer was inspired to become an educator after his history teacher and his drama teacher encouraged him to let his light shine. Today, Zimmer inspires his own students to take the stage and share big ideas with the world. To help students learn the art of performance, Zimmer designed a TED-Ed Innovation Project that shares the wisdom of TEDx speakers via video interviews. Below, check out the interview questions developed by Zimmer — and his notes on the project.
A student enrichment project that connects TEDx speakers with students via TED-Ed Clubs, classrooms and mentorship events in Canada.
Zimmer says: This project gives TEDx speakers the chance to continue to share their ideas and make them accessible to students. The speakers I have worked with are always excited at the prospect of sharing or mentoring students.
