Playlist Of TED-Ed Videos In Spanish

A year-or-two ago I blogged about a new YouTube channel where TED-Ed was going to be sharing their videos in Spanish.

They’ve since deleted that channel and, instead, have a channel where they show a variety of TED Talks in Spanish, including these TED-Ed videos.

As part of that channel, they keep a Playlist just of the TED-Ed videos in Spanish. I’ve embedded their latest at the bottom of this post.

I’m adding this info to The Best Teacher Resources For “TED Talks” (& Similar Presentations).

New TED-Ed Video: “How the stethoscope was invented” (Plus, A Series On Other Inventions)

TED-Ed has released a video and lesson on How the stethoscope was invented.

In addition, I learned that it was the seventh in a series on inventions. The series is called “Moments Of Vision” and you can find the entire playlist here.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Learn About Inventions.

New PBS News Hour Video: “This graphic novelist and reading ambassador tells kids to reach beyond their comfort zone”

The PBS News Hour just ran this segment.

Here’s how they describe it:

Graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang wrestled with his identity growing up, but he’s made the Chinese-American experience one of the main subjects of his critically acclaimed work. One of this year’s MacArthur Fellowship winners and the national ambassador for young people’s literature, Yang sits down with Jeffrey Brown to discuss his childhood, his love of coding and the feeling of being an outsider.
