Ted Talks Manipulated For the Classroom

By going here, I can take any 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.

So here is a video on how the invention of ship containers has changed the modern world.  When you click on it, you will see multiple choice and other thoughtful questions, as well as the video.  One great use would be to take the John Green overviews of world history and create questions for your students to answer as a way of review.  By the way I learned about this idea on Edudemic
