TED stands for Technology, Education and Design with a tagline of “Ideas Worth Sharing.” The blog shares TED talks and deep thoughts that relate to a variety of topics. Summaries, comments, links and innovative thinking are streamlined into one place that serve as an amazing resource for educators (and thinkers).
To gain the attention of students on a particular subject, instructors can link or upload a TED talk to stimulate thought and response. The riveting talks can be used throughout a lesson.
A couple of additional resources related to TED are linked below:
John Boswell “It’s Time for TED.” : a mashup of important TED lessons from 2012.
These resources are great tools for educators to bring great minds into the classroom.
