Reflection: Unit Planning Exploring the Nitrogen Cycle - Section 1: Engage


If you're not familiar with TED Talks, this is where the story of TEDEd starts. Over the past few years more than 2,000 high quality talks on a wide variety of topics have been recorded and offered on the TED platform.

"TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world."

TEDEd is a free lesson building platform that supports a teacher in organizing lessons around a TED Talk.
