Build a lesson around any TED-Ed Original, TED Talk or YouTube video.


TED-Ed’s commitment to creating lessons worth sharing is an extension of TED’s mission of spreading great ideas. Within TED-Ed’s growing library of lessons, you will find carefully curated educational videos, many of which represent collaborations between talented educators and animators nominated through the TED-Ed platform. This platform also allows users to take any useful educational video, not just TED's, and easily create a customized lesson around the video. Users can then distribute TED-Ed lessons, publicly or privately, and track their impact on the world, a class, or an individual student. This platform is also the home to TED-Ed Clubs -- an exciting new program that aims to stimulate and celebrate the best ideas of students around the world.

TED-Ed Lessons

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 ideas 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 ways.

Wasn't sure how I'd use this as as I already post videos and students submit their own self produced videos via the Edmodo platform. Then I realized - if students post their own videos via Ted Ed they can create their own assessments to go with their videos - a great way to get peer assessment & feedback. There is room for differentiation via the increasing difficulty level of the assessment option types that can be designed to accompany the videos.

Ted-Ed is still developing content in the humanities, but I've used the Shakespeare Insult video as part of a flipped lesson. Students enjoy watching videos at home, and I add the link to an Edmodo post so that they can also discuss the video as they watch it. Keep in mind that watching a video alone does not a lesson make. The resources provided are great, but to make the connections to our in-class work, I add discussion topics to Edmodo as well.

TED-Ed is similar to TED. However TED-Ed's main focus is on educational thought. In addition, TED-Ed is able to produce lesson plans for the various presentations. These plans are of benefit to the educator in covering a particular topic with students. The lesson plans used revolve around the "flip teaching" concept. This teaching concept is a significant change from the traditional teaching method. Also, this site could be very beneficial to professional development planners, as well.

TED-Ed is a site dedicated to lessons worth sharing. TED, which is known for their stunning video lecture series, has launched a new service that focuses on lessons and education. Teachers, other experts, and pretty much anyone can send an audio file which TED-Ed will animate and place on their site to share with the world. It is a stunning effort powered by real educators and volunteer animation experts. The results are fantastic and engaging. This is another strong entry...

I love using TED videos in my classroom to get students thinking about issues related to what we are studying. When I heard that I could wrap video content in an online lesson with TED Ed, I decided to check it out. The process of setting up my first lesson was refreshingly easy! 1. Go to TED-Ed to check out the collection of 138 educational lessons. You can search by: 2. Find a lesson you like and “Flip” it. The first lesson I used with...
