TED-ED-Clubs-main

The effect of laughter on someone who’s sad. The danger and excitement of dirt biking. The reason human beings need so much sleep. The thought of infinity.

These are just a few of the topics that students are exploring through TED-Ed Clubs. This new program is a way to celebrate the ideas of students around the globe. Through the TED-Ed Club, students — with the help of an adult facilitator — identify and research the ideas that matter to them most. And while the TED-Ed Club offers students the opportunity to connect with others who, like them, are unabashedly curious about the world, TED-Ed Club is also about presentation literacy. TED-Ed Club offers students a hands-on opportunity to work on the storytelling and communication skills that will be vital, no matter what career path they end up strolling down.

For the first three meetings, students watch TED Talks, discuss them and begin to think: what idea most captures my imagination? From there, students learn how to frame their idea and present it in a TED-style talk. In meeting 11, students give their talks in front of the club and, in the next meeting, work on editing their video. As a final step, these talks are uploaded to the TED-Ed YouTube channel — some may even be featured on the TED-Ed website.

TED-Ed Clubs are designed to create a generation of creative problem-solvers around the globe.
