What All You Will Learn In This Summer Workshop?

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.


Phase – I

DISCOVER: What Are Your Ideas?

  • Exploration 1: Tell Us Who You Are

    This Exploration is all about getting to know each other and identifying and articulating the ideas that motivate and inspire one another.

  • Exploration 2: Discover Great Ideas

    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”.

  • Exploration 3: Identify Your Ideas

    In this Exploration, students will explore their possible topics more deeply and practice giving and receiving feedback.

Phase – III

SHARE: Rehearse and deliver your Talk

  • Exploration 4: Build Your Throughline

    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.

  • Exploration 7: Write Your Script

    In this Exploration, students will bring together a draft of their throughline, storyboard, and research and will have time to develop their script.

  • Exploration 8: Practice, Edit, Practice

    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.

  • Exploration 5: Plan Your Talk Arc

    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.

  • Exploration 6: Research & Support Your Idea

    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

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.
