TED (technology, entertainment and design) is embarking on a new project. Known for there inspiring videos on a wide variety of topics, TED is now targeting education. Launching a new youtube channel, TEDEducation, TED hopes to bring the best lessons teachers give to more people than those sitting in class, probably not even paying attention. TED hopes to bring together teachers along with animators in order to make these lessons as engaging as possible. Currently they are looking for teachers and artists to join with them in this new experiment and people can nominate those they feel deserve a shot. intro video and a little more info here: http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/13/ted-launches-ted-ed/

    Anyone who has ever watched an educational video somewhere on the internet can attest to the fact that such videos simply don’t get any better than TED. They have perfected the process of selecting the right variety of speakers over ranging topics who are both proficient in their field and practiced in their delivery. Considering how minor this change in focus is to a classroom based “lecture” like educational video I cannot wait to see an example of a finished product along these lines from this impressive organization.
