Best TED Ed Lessons of 2014
In the past few months, I’ve selected my favorites among thousands of TED Ed lessons; everything from how elephants never forget to why the same food costs different amounts around the world. So they are essentially what I would consider the best TED Ed lessons of 2014.
But there’s an easy way to explore the best of TED Ed lessons, and pick out your favorites from 2014. The TED team has grouped together many lessons in various series, so you can discover great learning on your own.
There are a total of 39 series. Each of these contains a variety of lessons; from just one or two, to as many as 30! The topics range far and wide, and you can see the list of all 39 on this page.
And, to make it even easier to explore, I’ve broken the 39 series into five intriguing categories, with links to each one:
Exploring Issues and History
Science & Math
Design, Arts & Letters
I look forward to featuring more of my favorite TED Ed lessons in the new year. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Learning Liftoff’s Best of 2014 series. Happy 2015!
