Influential Educators Can Win Kohl's Competition With TED

Kohl’s Department Stores and TED, the nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” has announced the “Lessons Worth Sharing” program that will award 18 educators across the country with the opportunity to have their most impactful and influential lesson featured as an animated video on TED’s global TED-Ed website. As the new school year approaches, Kohl’s wants to encourage students and school supporters to nominate their favorite educator on Kohl’s Facebook page in order to share their most inspiring lesson with kids worldwide. Now through Aug. 24, you can visit facebook.com/kohls to nominate an educator with a “Lesson Worth Sharing,” get more information, and view the official rules.

“Kohl’s is committed to kids’ education and we are excited to announce, as part of our ongoing partnership with TED, the ‘Lessons Worth Sharing’ program to celebrate and reward amazing educators,” says Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “As kids and parents start to think about the new school year, we are thrilled to offer their favorite educators the opportunity to have their greatest lessons reach and motivate learners across the world.”

Earlier this spring, TED launched TED-Ed with support from Kohl’s Cares®. TED-Ed includes a groundbreaking website housed on TED.com that enables teachers, parents, and anyone who wants to spread a lesson the ability to create unique customized lesson plans around TED-Ed video content. TED-Ed seeks to inspire curiosity by harnessing the talent of the world's best teachers and visualizers with new tools that spark and facilitate learning. One new innovative tool featured on the site allows teachers to “flip” a video, edit it, and create a tailored lesson rendered on a new and private web page. The creator of the lesson can then distribute it and track individual students’ progress as they complete the assignment. The TED-Ed site was built in part with a more than $1 million contribution from Kohl’s Cares, and optimizes TED content for use in educational settings.

For the “Lessons Worth Sharing” program, Kohl’s Facebook fans can nominate their favorite educator and lesson worth sharing. Nominees can include teachers, parents, professionals, or anyone with a lesson worth teaching. Submissions can include powerful lessons – packed into 5 minutes or less - on subjects that vary from the way we think, to math in real life, or how things work. Eighteen educators that meet program criteria as outlined in the official rules will be selected and have their lesson professionally animated to video and then posted to TED-Ed and Kohl’s Facebook page. Winning educators and their nominator will also receive a $100 Kohl’s Gift Card. The winning educators will be announced in late September.
