We love TED ( and know many teachers already use TEDTalk ( videos as a way to bring engaging expert voices into their classrooms. It’s really exciting to see that they are launching a new initiative to build a comprehensive repository of short, educational videos that they hope will improve the resources available to teachers around the globe.

In order to design just the right resources for teachers they’ve created the TED-Ed Brain Trust, an online forum where educators can share ideas about what TED-Ed could ultimately become. In their own words:

“TED is seeking the expertise of visionary educators, organizations and creative professionals to help guide, galvanize & ultimately lead this exciting new initiative.”
