The TEDEd initiative was announced to great fanfare at last year's TED, where Sal Khan of Khan Academy also spoke. Khan's online library of 3000+ short videos, combined with an adaptive learning platform, is enabling math and science teachers nationwide to "flip the classroom," asking students to watch the lectures at home while spending precious class time on personalized interactions. TEDEd's starter set of videos are another step forward in the death of the traditional lecture, with TED's trademark high production values. On the press call Chris Anderson, TED's curator, hinted at some interactive tools to come next month. In the meantime, teachers will no doubt continue to talk amongst themselves about the best ways to use TED videos in the classroom.
