Apply now, or read on for more details about the program.
The TED-Ed Innovative Educator program launched in 2015 with a founding cohort of 28 educators from 11 countries. [Meet the first cohort of TED-Ed Innovative Educators here.] As TED’s on-the-ground education ambassadors and advocates, TED-Ed Innovative Educators lead their communities, and TED’s network of over 250,000 teachers, in amplifying great ideas in education.
During the year-long professional development program, TED-Ed Innovative Educators participate in two months of digital training in how to help people make the most of TED’s free tools for teachers and students — including TED-Ed Originals, TED-Ed Clubs and the TED-Ed Platform — followed by 10 months of innovation support within a dynamic community of learners and educators from around the world.
One cornerstone of the program is the TED-Ed Innovation Project. Each project must impact teachers and/or students; be replicable by other teachers and/or students, and integrate and share TED-Ed concepts or resources. The first cohort of TED-Ed Innovative Educators is working on their projects now. To read more about their ongoing adventures in innovation, subscribe to the TED-Ed Newsletter here.
