This is a great site that has been started to help teachers use TED videos with their classes. I think that this is a great idea. I’ve used TED videos off and on for a while, but I usually only use part of them as I’m afraid my (non-credit students particularly) won’t take the time to watch the whole video. However, I think that I’m going to begin asking them to watch these for homework.
The video below was an extra piece added to this suggested lesson. It’s a video, but the lyrics are much more important than the the pictures. Have a listen and see if you really understand its meaning.
