iT STARTED AS AN IDEA WORTH SHARING...
TED's education initiative at ed.ted.com aims to amplify the voices and ideas of teachers and students around the world. One of my latest accomplishments is becoming a TED-Ed Innovative Educator. As leaders within TED’s global network of over 250,000 teachers, we are dedicated to helping people make the most of TED’s free tools for teachers and students — including TED-Ed Lessons, TED-Ed Clubs and theTED-Ed Platform. Throughout this year-long program, we connect regularly across time zones and national borders to explore, create and share innovations that spark student curiosity.
FOR MY TED-ED INNOVATION PROJECT,
I created Dollar Store STEM Gems: a resource for easy-to-plan and engaging STEM lessons that are...
- affordable (free or less than 30 cents per student!)
- accessible (kid-tested and executed in actual classrooms)
- aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS Science and Engineering Practices)
- accompanied with TED-Ed videos to help implementation
