TED-Ed Clubs

Bring TED to your classroom with TED-Ed Clubs! 
TED-Ed Clubs is a new flexible, school-based program that supports students in discussing, pursuing and presenting their big ideas in the form of short TED-style talks. TED-Ed Clubs are for students ages 8 to 18, and can contain up to 50 members. An educator - who gets materials and a hands-on orientation from the TED-Ed staff - leads the club through a series of 13 meetings, designed to get students to permanently wear their thinking caps. For the first three meetings, students watch TED Talks, discuss them and begin to think: what idea most captures my imagination? From there, students learn how to frame their idea and present it in a TED-style talk. In meeting 11, students give their talks in front of the club and, in the next meeting, work on editing their video.
