How I Use It
TED Talks are short videos where industry professional talk about certain subjects. They are great to reinforce learning, introduce a topic, or show how things are in the real world. Ted uses well-known people for it's videos and that keeps them interesting.
My Take
TED Talks is a great resource to have in any classroom. I have used them to review learning, introduce a new topic, or to get kids interested in the subject or new unit.TED Talks are typically not very long, but get right to the point of the topic. These videos could also be used to start a classroom discussion.
