At this pivotal moment in human history, TED-Ed is on a mission to collect and elevate the most compelling insights, stories, perspectives and ideas in education.
Educators, students, parents and guardians – we want to hear from you!
What have you learned about the power and potential of educators?
The effort it has taken to keep kids learning over the last few years is nothing short of historic. Educators across the entire school system, in-classroom teachers, counselors, coaches, nurses, etc., have taken on new roles to champion the continuity of learning. What new roles have emerged? What have these monumental efforts taught us about the power and potential of educators? And how can we ensure that these efforts are supported and celebrated?
What innovations have schools or parents/caregivers implemented to improve education?
The events of the last few years forced schools, communities and households to become innovative, creative, and agile. How have you responded to the needs of students, educators and families and what are some of the practices - systemic, technological, social, or otherwise - that will continue to serve educators and learners for generations to come?
How do students learn best?
Schools, educators, and parents/caregivers are exploring new pedagogy to cater to students’ varied learning needs. Share your takeaways, stories, and ideas on how to improve instruction so that every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
How can schools advance equity?
The past couple years have been incredibly challenging, especially their effect on those groups already underserved. What can we do to make sure education serves every student equitably, starting with our most marginalized communities?
Why this initiative, and why now?
The last several years of change have up-ended almost every aspect of education, revealing shortcomings alongside opportunities that have never felt both so urgent and so possible. As the world adjusts to ever-evolving new realities, TED-Ed wants to hear from those navigating these seismic shifts firsthand: the educators, students, and parents/guardians who are committed to keeping kids healthy, happy, safe and learning.
As we commit ourselves with stubborn optimism to building a better future, help us make a record of what’s working, what’s not and what we need to do next.
TED-Ed believes in the transformative power of education, and that together, we have the power to transform education. We will be selecting a number of submissions to be developed into TED-style Talks and shared with the world.
