  33. 33. ISAS- Independent Schools Association of the Southwest - is comprised of85 schools in 6 states, and including one school in Mexico City. We are aregional association and part of NAIS—National Association ofIndependent Schools. The primary responsibility of ISAS is schoolaccreditation; however, we also provide numerous professionaldevelopment opportunities for our member schools throughout the year.When a group of our Technology Directors joined forces and initiated theidea of participating in the TEDxYouth Day, we were pleased to serve as asupport and framework or context for their efforts.The participating schools that are pictured here are the ones who did thework under the guidance and direction of their individual technologydirectors. They are the ones who made this pilot project so successful. Wechose to brand our group TEDxYouth ISAS in order to identify ourcommunity of schools and also to serve as a model for other associationswho might choose to participate in the future thereby providing theirstudents to perform on a global stage.We are pleased to be able to continue to provide support and do a betterjob this second year with marketing and publicity. TEDx will be featured onour website in a more visible and user-friendly manner, rather than buriedin our calendar pages. We have time to do things a bit differently this yearand we also know more about what we are actually doing. . .both arehelpful in moving forward.As an Association, we are quite proud of the work our TechnologyDirectors have done to make TEDxYouthISAS such a success and arethrilled to continue our support. The amount of time and the selflessamount of energy this group is willing to lend this project is such atestament to their professionalism and dedication to what is best in 21stcentury education.
