TED-Ed | A New Video Platform for learning

TED-Ed | A  New Video Platform for learning | SpencerAyres | Scoop.it

After the launch of their YouTube channel TED Ed have now announced the TED Ed video platform - with the strapline "Lessons Worth Sharing"

 

As you would expect, the platform is built around content from TED Ed partners and YouTube Edu Partners. Content is organised by subject and context and teachers can build various learning activities, and questions around this content.

 

More importantly the platforms potential reaches out beyond the featured content, orgamised into subjects and themes to any content in YouTube - and that is its strength.  As Chris Anderson of TED states in his post:

 

"the goal is to allow any teacher to take a video of their choice (yes, any video on YouTube, not just ours) and make it the heart of a lesson"

 

Teachers can register to join the platform and create their own video based  learning resources. I think this is an important development in video for learning and the important  thing is that it is open to all around the world.

7 Issues 7 Solutions 7 Minutes by Spencer Ayres on Prezi

This is my Prezi from Teach Meet Coventry last night. It highlights 7 issues in education that students want and in my opinion need, with 7/14 various solutions. (The Venn diagram is more for illustration, many of the 'solutions' actually answer more of the issues than this suggests).

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds | SpencerAyres | Scoop.it

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

 

I use it to get a visual representation of what is being said in a long peice of text.
