TED Ed is one of our favourite video resources we have been recommending to teachers and educators over the last few years. The great thing about this platform is that it provides video lessons submitted by teachers and animated by professional animators.TED Ed videos are less than 10 minutes long and are ideal to include with students in class. More importantly, TED Ed enables teachers to create their own interactive lessons and share it with others. the process is very simple and we have already covered it in a previous post: just find a video you want to use in your lesson, then add interactive materials to it (e.g questions, discussion prompts..etc) and when you are done share it with your class and track its progress.
