TED-Ed: Lessons Worth Sharing

TED-Ed: Lessons Worth Sharing | Technology for school | Scoop.it

Ted Education...
- is in effect a YouTube channel that was released just few months ago;
- has grown in poplularity to gain thousands of subscribers in a very short period of time.

 

TED has now provided a tool that allows practitioners to use engaging videos to create customized lessons.

 

TED-Ed enables practitioners to use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-ED, and/or create lessons from scratch based on videos from YouTube.

 

One of the important features of Ted- Ed beta, is that practitioners can turn a video into a customized lesson that can be assigned to learners or shared more widely.

 

Practioners can also add context, questions, and follow-up suggestions to any video on Ted-Ed or YouTube.

 

Follow the link, to learn more about what users can do with TED-Ed.

The Physics Classroom

The Physics Classroom is an online interactive tutorial of basic physics concepts. The lessons use an easy-to-understand language to present common physics principles discussed in physics courses.

 

The Physics Classroom provides access to...

- physics tutorials,

- Mind on Physics Internet Modules (1300+ questions designed to improve understanding of common physics topics),

- problem sets for practice,

- multimedia,

- animations (ideal for using on an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected PC)

- activity sheets,

- curriculum corner (pdf downloads),

- labs,

- photos, and more.

 

I suggest practitioners spend time exploring this site before recommending it to learners so they can help them navigate it.

 

There is a danger, because it is so information heavy, the Phusics Classroom could be a turn-off for learners who are just dropping in looking for something specific.

101questions

What is the first question that comes to your mind?

 

For any practitioner seeking to engage maths learners, Dan Meyer’s 101questions site, is a resource that is wort a closer look!

 

Images and videos are posted on the website, and registered users are invited to pose questions, using 140 characters or less.

 

After asking a question, users can check to see what others have asked.

 

I’ve had fun browsing the website, and I’m pretty sure there’s potential here for engaging maths learners.
