13 Mar TED-Ed Launches
TED launched their new education orientated series of short films today. Called TED-Ed the formula appears to be:
- Identify a cool topic (e.g. How do Dolphins Communicate?)
- Find a brilliant teacher (e.g. Miss Hogarth from Anytown High)
- Put 1 and 2 together with some ‘pro-animators’ (volunteers wanted)
- Create a 10 min video and share with the world.
It’s a nice idea, and of course it will all be free to share but I can’t help thinking that we are in danger of turning learning into ‘videobites’.
