This post will highlight important moments of my collaboration with Mahrukh Bashir to initiate TED Ed Club Station at TEDx Youth Lazuardi.
I first met Mahrukh in Facebook in TED Ed Club Facilitator program. I was very excited back then as Mahrukh was the only teacher who initiated TED Ed Club in 2014. She set excellent model of TED Ed Club in Indonesian school which inspired me a lot. Through social media (Facebook & Twitter), We discussed and exchanged thought and resources about spreading TED Ed Club in Indonesia. This is the photo of Lazuardi TED Ed Club :
In 2015, we joined TED Ed Innovative Educator program and we did some projects. Mahrukh has special project to give TED Ed training to schools so that educators could use TED Ed resources & start TED Ed Clubs in their school. If you need TED Ed training, Mahrukh is one of the most resourceful and amazing person for doing that. You can reach out her by contacting her via Facebook here.
I first met her in person in TEDx Youth at SPH while I launched TED Ed Club Station project in February 2016. Then, Mahrukh invited me to bring my station to her TEDx Youth Lazuardi that would be launched in May 2016. I was more than excited to be part of her awesome initiaves! I helped spreading the event in my teachers community and brought my students to join the event through TED Ed Club Station.
