I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! Thank you to every teacher who gave the first 2-Minute Tech Challenge a shot. If you did not complete that one yet, have no fear–you are welcome to complete it at any time between now and the end of the challenge, March 31st.

This challenge focuses on TED Ed. Many folks are familiar with TED (technology, entertainment, and design), the series of talks that have brought some of the world best innovators and creators into the spotlight. TED Ed is spinoff of the original, and it adds some great features that make it useful as a teaching and learning tool. Watch the video for a (very) quick introduction and to learn about the challenge.

That’s it. When you’ve completed the challenge, be sure and post the link in the comments below. You’re comments or questions regarding the TED Ed resource and your thoughts on it as a teaching tool are very welcome, too.
