What is TED-Ed?
TED-Ed is TED’s youth and education initiative. TED-Ed’s mission is to spark and celebrate the ideas of teachers and students around the world. Everything they do supports learning by helping curious students around the globe bring TED to their schools and gain presentation literacy skills. TED-Ed will invite teachers and clubs to connect globally throughout the year. TED-Ed has grown from an idea worth spreading into an award-winning education platform that serves millions of teachers and students around the world every day.

Watch some short presentations about TED-Ed in Cajon Valley.
As you are watching these videos, think about talks that you could imagine your students creating. Think about the speaking techniques and visual aids the presentations integrate to enhance the effectiveness of the talk. Also, while you’re watching, think about how many different topics could be covered by a TED-Ed presentation. It doesn’t have to be something like the Pythagorean Theorem, it can be as varied as what’s happening on the front pages of Newseum or Newsela. Keep all this in mind while enjoying a few of the more popular TED-Ed videos.
