TED ED with Will Gourley and Stephanie Ng

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

As we try to come to terms with the potential of long-term school closures in a COVID-19 world, many organizations are working to create learning environments that can help students, parents and educators keep the learning going.

TED Ed (ed.ted.com) is a commitment to creating lessons worth sharing is an extension of TED’s mission of spreading great ideas. Today, I had the opportunity to speak with Ontario educator Will Gourley and Associate Director of TED-Ed Educator Talks, Stephanie Ng. Our conversation took us to the heart of what TED Ed is all about and how students, parents and educators can discover, create and share powerful content.
