Leverage the TED platform to amplify student voice

TED Talk videos have been shown by teachers to spark curiosity in students' learning on a variety of topics - from science and technology to the humanities. TEDx Youth Events are also a platform for students to express new ideas they are passionate about. TED's education facet, TED-Ed, has online, interactive lessons. Also TED-Ed clubs engage students with content and explorations based on discovering passions and ideas worth spreading, culminating in original student TED talks. Utilizing the combination of facets can be a powerful strategy to activate and amplify your students' voices and ideas. This panel of TED-Ed Innovative Educators discusses how, and why it is important.
