How to create digital homework that students love
US History teacher Jennifer Hesseltine combined TED-Ed Lessons with an interactive blackboard to create a digital homework space that students love. Let’s redesign homework. When’s the last time your students got excited to do homework? Or said things like, “Wow…just WOW. It is amazing how much is out there that we just don’t know about”? What if every homework assignment could expand a student’s worldview while engaging a kid’s natural curiosity? For her TED-Ed Innovation Project, US History teacher Jennifer Hesseltine created a digital homework space that students love. 1. You can either create a lesson using any engaging video of your choice, or simply customize an existing TED-Ed Original or TED-Ed Select lesson. 2. Give this homework space a fun title and a quick description. 3. If you need help sharing a customized lesson link, read this. “Wow…just WOW. 4. Students love TED-Ed lessons and the opportunity to learn. “TED-Ed videos are more fun than normal homework assignments.” 5.
