Are you a creative and passionate educator? Apply to be a TED-Ed Innovative Educator

TED-Ed-Innovative-Educators Cohort 1

TED-Ed seeks creative and passionate educators from all over the world to join our next cohort of TED-Ed Innovative Educators. Apply here before January 29!

Are you an educator seeking a passionate community of learners and innovators? Are you dedicated to celebrating the ideas of students and teachers around the world? Do you find creative ways to solve problems in your classroom, school or district? Then you might be one of the next TED-Ed Innovative Educators. 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 OriginalsTED-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.

  4. Hello,
    I am working on an education research project with the Icelandic and South African government, European Union and partners throughout Europe and Africa. This project, based on the American Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme, aims demonstrate that we can free up annual special needs resources worth 2 billion ISK in Iceland, £2 billion in the UK, and $15 Billion in the USA. At the same time we aim to save in the region of $10 billion in US correctional services, and £2 billion in the UK prison system through reduced re-offending rates as a result of highly effective rehabilitation/education programmes.
    See document here:

    I am aware that I have missed the deadline this year, but I was hoping to run a TED-Ed in Reykjavik in June 2016, where, in collaboration with the Reykjavik education department and Icelandic Members of Parliament, we could present these plans to representatives from the UK and USA governments.

    Please let me know if there is any chance to join at this late stage.

    Kind regards,

    Axel Gudmundsson
    Director of Gifted Dyslexic, Davis Dyslexia Association Africa, and Capella House school.
