Ted ED

Estimated Time: 1 Hour  |  Created By: Kristi Kimble

TEDed is a website that teachers can use to present lessons to students. There are two types of TED-Ed lessons. The first, TED-Ed’s award-winning original lessons, represent collaborations between expert educators, screenwriters and animators. Each collaboration aims to capture and amplify a great lesson idea suggested by the TED community. The second type of TED-Ed lesson can be created by any website visitor, and involves adding questions, discussion topics and other supplementary materials to any educational video on YouTube. Both types of TED-Ed lessons are used regularly – in classrooms and homes – to introduce new topics to learners in an exciting, curiosity-inspiring way.

Objective: By the end of the lesson users will be able to: Sign up and use a TedEd account. Understand how to locate and use different lessons available on the TedEd site. Create your own TedEd lesson. Assign lessons to your students and assess what they know.
