We have all heard of Ted Talks.  Now teachers can utilize Ted Ed for their classrooms.  Videos are categorized by topics and subject areas, have questions and deeper thinking activities to go with the videos, allow you to use You Tube videos in the same fashion, and even allow you to “FLIP” your lessons by altering content and saving a unique URL.  I am impressed with this learning tool for middle and high school students.
