Education and student personality: Should they work together? “TED Conferences has always been a community where one can explore some of the most intriguing and innovative ideas, while also becoming informed about hidden issues within our society. Over the last few years, I have found that listening to such speeches to be very entertaining and insightful. So, when I was given the opportunity to be a part of such an event, TEDxEnglishSchoolNicosia, I could not let it slip by. In my speech, I intend to unravel the simple, yet powerful thing, we call education. With hope to uncover all of its greatness, but also some hidden imperfections within. We have relied on it for decades and it is undoubtedly one of the best inventions of humanity. But have we ever considered that it can be improved further? What if there is more to it than we thought? How can we ensure that we utilize education at its maximum potential? I invite you to join me in this explorative journey, ‘unraveling’ the big question mark of the education that stands today.”
