Are you a TED fan? Now there’s TED-Ed, currently in Beta, that has an interesting, simplified way to share content and provoke thought for students.
As an amusing introduction, check out this “Some Study that I Used to Know.” It a “Best Flips” – TED-Ed’s term for a user-generated lesson. Featuring a YouTube video parody of “Somebody that I used to know,” it questions what from high school was really necessary learning.
If you’ve got another five minutes, go through the questions. It will cause some interesting reflection, guaranteed. (Did you hear that? It’s a guarantee!)
Keep those synapses jumpin!
