“Kashmir, my birthplace, has been facing political conflict for a very long time,” says Mahrukh Bashir, a TED-Ed Innovative Educator. Inspired to create a more peaceful world, she began teaching English in Indonesia — and sharing global education resources with her colleagues. (So far, she has trained more than 400 Indonesian educators in how to use TED learning tools.) Want to lead a TED-Ed professional development workshop at your school? Below, download a presentation slide deck, and check out Bashir’s workshop tips.
Here’s a TED-Ed Prezi that you can use to give a short presentation about TED’s learning resources for teachers and students. These slides are designed to be easy to share during staff meetings, school workshops, education conferences — and anywhere else you want to shine.
Below is another example. There are two parts to this workshop outline: Session 1 (a 30-minute introductory session) and Session 2 (a 2-hour active learning session). Teachers need both, says Bashir. However, if calendaring a block of time proves to be frustrating, then start with just the 30-minute Session 1. Slides are up to you!
