Technology Highlight

Build a lesson around any TED-Ed Original, TED Talk or YouTube video

TED-Ed videos are geared towards a high school / college audience. The videos are intended for learners; they teach a lesson. It is also a platform for teachers. You can adapt TED-Ed Original Lesson content to create customized lessons to use in your classroom. You can also use the Create a Lesson tool to build your own new lessons with any YouTube video.

Search for the topic you want to teach in the search box. You can watch any video that appears in the search results by clicking on its thumbnail. If you already know a particular video that you want to use, search for its title, url, or YouTube video ID.

Once you have selected the video you want to use for your lesson, click the video’s thumbnail and then click the Launch Lesson Editor button that appears below the video:

You should now see the lesson creator page with the video that you selected. Use this form to add a title and an introductory text. Use the "Think," "Dig Deeper," "Discuss," and "...And Finally" sections to add any questions, information, or discussion topics that you want. If you don’t need any of these sections, either manually exclude them, or simply leave them blank.

Once your customizations are complete, click the Publish button. Your lesson is now ready to be shared!
