The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and TED announced a partnership that will encourage educators to spread innovative ideas and powerful stories of teacher impact.
Starting fall of 2018, ISTE members will receive exclusive access to a new TED Masterclass program, an interactive course designed to support educators in using the power of storytelling to share their challenges, successes and inspiration from the classroom.
A cohort of educators participated in a pilot program of TED Masterclass this past spring. Each educator received early access to the online course and worked with a partner to refine their stories through a collaborative process. Three of the pilot participants were selected to give their talk as part of the keynote sessions at ISTE 2018 in Chicago.
Some educators will have an opportunity to have their TED Talk featured in the TED Masterclass app, which is set to launch later this year, and others will be showcased at ISTE’s 2019 Conference & Expo in Philadelphia.
