First off, thanks to all that tried out Padlet! There were many that emailed me and commented on how easy and fun it looks. Many of you participated in the ones I created, too! Such a great tool!
Today, we talk TedEd. I've been pushing this one for awhile. I send these out to content times several times a month. I highly believe in this site and its lessons. I even did one of my college projects on this site! Check out my VoiceThread below.
TedEd is a website that uses educators that create videos while collaborating with animators. There are lessons created and posted during the week and great educational TED Talks on the weekends.
Setup of a lesson:
I'm Batman - disproving the myth that bats are dangerous
How art can help you analyze
How much food can you buy for $5 around the world?
Under the hood: The chemistry of cars
What are those floaty things in your eye?
How to build a fictional world
Mile of Pi
The Pharaoh that wouldn't be forgotten
There are topics for ALL subjects. All of them. Seriously. Check them out! I NEED someone to use this resource. And tell me when they do it. I want to come check it out!
