Introducing TED-Ed: Lessons Worth Sharing

Have you seen TED-Ed?  It's a great new resource that utilizes crowd-sourcing paired with top notch animators and video editing.  It can be accessed both at YouTube (www.youtube.com/tededucation) or on YouTube EDU (not usually blocked by firewalls).

According to TED-Ed:
TED-Ed's mission is to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. We do this by pairing extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce a new library of curiosity-igniting videos. A new site, which will launch in early April 2012, will feature these new TED-Ed Originals as well as some powerful new learning tools.

For those who can't wait that long, we're pleased to announce the official launch of TED-Ed's YouTube channel featuring all of our new videos. Also, we are happy to extend an open invitation for the nomination of educators and animators and the suggestion of lesson ideas.

Thanks to Debi Crabtree at Hamilton County Virtual School for sharing TED-Ed.
