How I Use It
I use TED as a kick off for lessons. The wide range of talks allows one to find a multitude of talks about a lot of different items.The free talks by experts can be used to demonstrate a wide range of topics and reinforce concepts in a wide range of formats.
My Take
This is a great way to introduce students to topics in an interesting and engaging way. It can lead to great discussion and debate withing a classroom. Overall Ted is one my favorite apps. Again it is available in a wide range of platforms.
