MS 223: The Power of Arts Education
Ramon Gonzalez is principal of Middle School 223, located in New Yorks poorest Congressional District—the South Bronx. MS 223, formerly identified as the most dangerous intermediate school in New York City, is undergoing a transformation. With the help of the School Arts Support Initiative, funded by the Center for Arts Education and the New York TImes Company Foundation, the arts are taking their place as a basic subject along with English, Math, Science, Social Studies and Technology. Through interviews and classroom footage, Mr. Gonzalez, teachers, Teaching Artists and students discuss the transformative elements of the School Arts Support Initiative and lay out the nuts and bolts needed for a successful arts-rich school environment.

The Benefits of Technology in Education: Sangmum Lee at TEDxYouth@BIS
Sangmun Lee is from South-Korea, where he spent most of his life. When he was young he didn’t notice how dangerous electronic devices and internet technology can be, but he finally encountered the truth. He thinks that this problem should be solved in some way or people are going to become slaves to technology. He thought about what part of technology made itself so toxic to us, and the reasons why we are so hooked on tech.
