For some time now, teachers have understood the value of using TED videos in their classroom. When used well, they can enhance many lessons. Additionally, they can serve as a springboard to many rich discussions on a wide variety of topics like whether the egg or chicken came first. Somewhat less known is TED-ED and TED-ED Lessons. The once disparate collection of interesting videos has been organized into a tidy package for teachers to use in their classrooms. Additionally, lessons have been created for the videos. In addition to the ready-made lessons, teachers can create their own lessons using an almost endless database of educational videos. When planning a lesson or reflecting on ways to improve one previously taught, consider using this great resource as a supplement to your lesson.
