“Ideas worth spreading”, is the motto for the nonprofit conference called TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design.  Recently, TED decided to take the next step in spreading ideas by introducing TED Ed.

“Lessons worth sharing” is the motto for TED Ed with a mission to “capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world.”  With TED Ed, classrooms can have a better learning experience and can pull knowledge from many other educators from around the world.

All educators need to do is submit their lesson. After submitting, the lesson is then reviewed by TED. TED Ed then selects a lesson, captures it with their portable recording booths, and then crunches the lesson down to 10-15 minutes. After this step, the lesson is then shared with TED’s animation team where it is created into an animated video. The videos are then uploaded to TED Ed’s YouTube channel, where they can be viewed and shared.

But it doesn’t end there, you can nominate an educator or animator and you can even suggest a lesson idea to TED.
