TED Talks…you’ve probably heard of them, right? Maybe you’re an active TED Talks viewer? Maybe you’ve watched a few of them for professional development? TED Talks go beyond the inspiring, thought-provoking talks around ideas worth sharing. TED Talks have a place in the educational setting as teachers find ways to bring the elements of TED Talks into the classroom as viewable content, learning activities, and lesson plans. Ultimately, the true purpose behind TED Talks is for all to learn and grow as professionals and students.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Share the definition of a TED Talk, identify types of TED Talks out there including TED-Ed, and share how TED Talks have impacted us as professional educators;
  • Explore and reflect on the content shared in each of the TED Talks we will explore in this course; and
  • Create a specific action plan around the ideas shared from the TED Talks we will explore in this course

This class is available for License Renewal, Graduate, Paraeducator or Audit credit.
