TED-Ed and Flipped Lessons

It's been a year since I wrote about the virtues of TED, a rich resource for videos to support teaching and learning. If you have not explored their website, I encourage you to do so.

Last month, The Chronicle of Higher Education included an article ("New TED-Ed Site Turns YouTube Videos Into Flipped Lessons") that focused upon TED's new website, TED-Ed. According to the author, this new resource will help to transform a video into "an interactive part of a lesson". This strategy, frequently referred to as the 'flipped classroom', has become a popular methodology for creating engaging content that can be reviewed by students outside the classroom. As a result, more time is provided inside the classroom for relevant activities, discussions, and interactions among students and between teachers and students.
