I’m always so appreciative to work in a district with such smart colleagues. Dan Tompkins, Tech Integrator in Richmond, sent this along to me and it’s a goldmine.
I’ve always been a fan of TedTalks. They are often relevant to what we teach but finding them and then figuring out the best way to use them can be time consuming. Not anymore! Ed.ted.com offers the ability to “build a lesson around any TED-Ed Original, TED Talk or YouTube Video” – or use one that someone else has shared.
Each lesson has questions, resources for deeper learning, and discussion questions that can be answered online in a forum environment. By logging in and creating a class you can create a classroom of your own using some of the “too many to count” TedEd resources, or you can make your own with your flipped videos that are posted on YouTube.
Some intriguing titles I found:
- A Trip Through Space to Calculate Distance
- Shakespearean Dating Tips
- RNAi: Slicing and Dicing Your Cells
This tour site is well worth the time to visit.
