In nearly two weeks since the launch of TED-Ed Clubs, almost 700 educators spanning 50+ countries completed applications in the hopes of bringing the program into their classrooms. Meanwhile, TED-Ed’s Twitter feed saw a flurry of excitement as educators and students took to their keyboards to share their thoughts. Here, a look at what they had to say.
Some Tweeters registered a calm and collected approval of the idea.

Others could barely contain their excitement.
