TED Expands to Education

My fascination with TED just increased with the launch of its newest initiative dedicated to Education.  It is called TED-Ed: Lessons Worth Sharing.  TED was originally created to bring together great minds and grand ideas aimed at changing attitudes and ultimately the world.  The website and conferences plays host to inspired thinkers and those who would engage with such ideas.

The current TED-Ed has five playlists organized into Awesome Nature; How Things Work; Playing with Language; Questions No One Knows the Answers; Inventions that Shaped History.  These are sure to expand as time goes by.  There is even a place where you can suggest lessons that they can animate.

This has definite possibilities to incorporate powerful video content into the classroom.
