What is TED-Ed Student Talks?
You may have seen people talk on a variety of topics and experiences
on TED.com, or heard about one of the thousands of TEDx events that
happen around the world.
Well, guess what??
Now you have a chance to appear on TED talks too!
This summer workshop is aimed at anyone who has big ideas, is inspired to make profound change in the world, and not sure how to do it. We will walk you through finding your passion, thinking big ideas and sharing them in an engaging way that connects with an audience.
We will be teaching the curriculum which has been shared by the TED-Ed team itself. There are 13 explorations which will be covered in 3 phases and 8 classes, followed by a Masterclass.
DISCOVER: What Are Your Ideas?
This Exploration is all about getting to know each other and identifying and articulating the ideas that motivate and inspire one another.
What makes a great idea? Is it the solution to a problem? Is it the way the community reacts? Is it the passion we feel from the speaker? In this Exploration, students will discuss, consider and define the important qualities of an “idea worth spreading”.
In this Exploration, students will explore their possible topics more deeply and practice giving and receiving feedback.
DEVELOP: Research and design your Talk
SHARE: Rehearse and deliver your Talk
A throughline is the main connecting theme or anchoring idea in a story. Every Talk should have a throughline that is clearly identifiable throughout. This Exploration will help establish that anchor.
In this Exploration, students will bring together a draft of their throughline, storyboard, and research and will have time to develop their script.
In this Exploration, students will rehearse their Talk, receive and incorporate feedback and then rehearse some more! Students will practice building a connection with the audience.
During this Exploration, we take time to identify the key elements of a great story and map out the path from beginning to middle to end.
The purpose of this Exploration is to give students dedicated time to outline their idea in greater detail. In this Exploration, students will think about what they have learned about story arc, and will decide how to support their idea with evidence.

Frequently Asked Questions
The TED-Ed Student Talks program supports groups of students developing TED-style talks in over 100 countries. On any given day, 50,000+ students are led by educators through the process of identifying, developing and sharing their ideas. Every day, educators are incorporating TED-Ed Student Talks into existing curricula, programs and extracurricular activities in innovative ways and educators report an increase in students' confidence skills and ability to develop their original ideas, as well as development of student’s speaking, perspective-taking, empathy, cultural and global awareness skills. Students are then invited, but not required, to share their Talk with the world by uploading it to the TED-Ed Student Talks YouTube Channel. To date, we have amplified thousands of student talks.
