11 TED Ed Talks for Students
Videos are a great tool for flipped learning and blended classrooms. The TED Ed video library is a collection of educational videos curated specifically for the education community. The videos are animated and made by other teachers. What’s more is that teachers can build lessons around these videos. For help using videos for a flipped classroom lesson, check out this tutorial.
Here are three cool videos from that list:
How sugar affects the brain – Nicole Avena
How do we smell? – Rose Eveleth
The power of simple words – Terin Izil
