TED-Ed Student Talks
The TED-Ed Student Talks Program supports students as they discover, explore and present their big ideas in the form of short, TED-style talks. The 5th-grade students at William Penn Elementary were the first group of elementary students to participate in the TED-Ed Student Talks program at Elizabeth Forward School District. Led by a 5th-grade teacher, Mrs. Danielle McConnell, students spent the spring of 2022 working through the program. The TED-Ed Student Talks asks students to:
- Identify a passion or an "idea worth spreading"
- Research this topic
- Create a TED Talk-style presentation based on their topic
- Creating visual aids using Keynote
- Practice and provide peer feedback using a form created with Numbers
- Record their final presentation
Students shared ideas on a variety of different topics, including volunteering at local animal shelters, living with Lyme Disease, and more! To view the TED-Ed Student Talk presentations by the 5th graders at William Penn Elementary, please click here!
One of the many great aspects of the @TED_ED Student Talks program is the focus on feedback and teamwork! A special shout out to Mr. Huber and the @EFWarriors students who work in the PAES Lab for helping put together our Student Talk Idea Journals! 👍 #EFproud pic.twitter.com/o9vuPpoNfj— Steve Hartnett (@MrHartnett212) March 15, 2022
