The Techy Teacher/Join the TED-Ed Club
Tucker, Catlin
Educational Leadership, v74 n4 p88-89 Dec 2016
Classrooms exist in an insular environment, and the work done there often feels disconnected from students' lives, interests, and hobbies. However, students today must cultivate the ability to navigate an increasingly connected global society. Global-ready graduates must be able to tackle real-world challenges, publish their work online, and connect with a worldwide audience. In this article, Catlin Tucker describes how, as a TED-Ed Clubs program facilitator, she guided her students through the process of identifying a real-world challenge, exploring and articulating an idea worth sharing, and delivering a powerful talk to publish online.
