TED-Ed gives the children an opportunity to have their voices heard, to tell their story and to develop their public speaking skills. The club cycle is composed of 13 different stages, with the end result being the children creating their own TED style speech.
Through the 13 stages the children explore and develop an idea or question that they are interested in. For example; What is it like to grow up as a girl in a township? Why doesn’t our brain grow as we learn new things? and Who created God?
The children develop responses to the questions by visiting and asking professionals, researching in the library, using the internet and finally drawing their own conclusion and composing their TED style talk.
