Resource Introduction: TED Ed
What is it?
How can I use it?
You can use the service in a basic way by adapting a previously published lesson and assigning it to your students. So, for instance, if you found a sweet lesson on life as a teen in ancient Rome (Yes, they have that), you could assign it as is or take it and modify its questions, extensions, or discussions to suit your purposes. It is your own lesson, but it comes with the super cool TED lesson video and online framework.
If you wanted to create a totally original lesson, you could use the lesson generator to develop your own. Simply link a video and then write questions, post extension links, and/or establish discussion boards. Then, watch the student interaction develop. The service provides you with the opportunity to manage students, monitor progress, and regulate discussion.
