Ted Talks Manipulated For Your Classroom

I love looking at cutting edge ideas on Ted Talks.  In fact I started by government class this year with this video on how the web is being shaped to your needs and the impact of that on democracy.  Well soon, by going here, I can take the Ted Talk, or for that matter, any video on Youtube and create a lesson with multiple choice and short answer questions to go with it.  When that is done you will be given a unique url which you can then give to your students.  The videos will then be aggregated into one social studies page.

Here is a Ted Talks video on why we vote on Tuesdays and when you go to it, you will see the video, multiple choice questions and short answer ones. By the way I learned about this idea on Edudemic
