TED Talks has just unveiled a new program called TED-Ed Clubs.
I’ve embedded a video below about it but, basically, it’s designed to encourage young people to create their own versions of a TED Talk through starting a school club.
Helping students develop better speaking skills is great but, I don’t know about you, but I get tired just thinking of helping start and teach an after-school TED-Ed Club.
Fortunately, though, they seem to be open to teachers using their materials in class (some of which look decent). They published this teacher’s question:
I’m a teacher and want to use some of the TED-Ed Club curriculum to guide student classroom projects. How do I do that?
And here was their answer:
Apply to start a TED-Ed Club and we’ll work with you to figure out how you can incorporate some of the materials into your own curriculum.
So, if you’re interested, you can apply here.
I’m adding this info to The Best Teacher Resources For “TED Talks” (& Similar Presentations).
I hope students make good use of the opportunity.
