I introduced the TED Ed Clubs program in my previous post. I would like tell you about the advantages of being a part of TED Ed Clubs program.  Below, I have listed the advantages of joining the TED Ed clubs for students.

1. To enhance personal growth by acquiring new skills.
  • TED Ed Clubs curriculum is designed to teach presentation literacy and public speaking skills. 
  • Students learn to draft a powerful talk, structure it and deliver it effectively.
  • Students learn basic animation and video production techniques while recording their talks.

2. To help students celebrate their authentic self.
  • This program is about personal passion and relevance.
  • It is not competitive rather it celebrates uniqueness of every student.
  • It emphasizes on passion-driven education. It helps students in finding their passions, interests and key values of life.
