TEDEd Clubs

Thinking about you can inspire the young people you teach to think more deeply and communicate more powerfully?

Wondering how you can provide kids space and time to pursue their passions and share their voices?

Interested in sponsoring a club that will truly make a difference in children’s lives?  That may encourage them to make a difference in the world?

The newly launched TEDEd Clubs may be just what you are looking for.

The mission of TEDEd Clubs is to celebrate the best ideas of young people around the worldApply to be a club facilitator.  You’ll be invited to participate in a video call to ask questions, meet other potential facilitators, and to share ideas.

Once approved you’ll have access to the free tools that will guide you through setting up a club.  A Facilitator’s Guidebook outlines thirteen suggested meetings, designed to help club members develop presentation literacy skills and to prepare them to deliver their first TED-style talks.

Approved facilitators may nominate the presentations of their club members to be featured on TEDEd and for the annual TED Youth Conference.

This is a perfect opportunity for TL leadership.  Beginning a  TEDEd Club would allow you to connect with learners in deep meaningful ways and to help them develop truly authentic skills that will last a lifetime.
