In TED-Ed clubs, students work together to discuss and celebrate inspirational ideas. Club leaders follow TED-Ed’s flexible curriculum to guide and inspire the members to compose a talk about their great idea or a story that only they can tell. Members discover, explore, research and develop ideas worth spreading and learn to present their ideas in front of an audience. Through watching and engaging in the TED-Ed initiative, the students are given a chance to amplify their voices and have their stories heard.
What are TED-Ed Clubs? A platform to spark curiosity and celebrate students and their ideas. Club meetings are held twice a week where the club works through the thirteen step TED-Ed curriculum. The meetings are often informal and the members engage in discussion and feedback sessions. Students conduct their own research and compose a talk about a story only they can tell, under the guidance of their TED-Ed club leader.
Connections TED-Ed clubs represent thousands of students from around the world actively pursuing and presenting their great ideas and stories. As part of this global network, the club members have the opportunity to connect with clubs around the world or with local organisations, broadening their circle of opportunities.
Through SAVE Foundation, club leaders will receive training, ongoing mentorship and curriculum to guide their school’s club and to help inspire tomorrow’s TED speakers and community leaders. Our customised guided club curriculum aims to promote presentation and English literacy skills with a focus on building the student’s confidence and students are given the hands-on opportunity to work on the storytelling and communication skills that will be vital, no matter what career path they choose in the future.
