Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Between the excellent-quality videos and the extensive flipped-classroom lesson plans, TED-Ed is a great resource for kids looking for education, inspiration, and fun. Animations are super engaging and well done (just as good as anything kids'll see on Nickelodeon); "The Contributions of Female Explorers" is done in a retro watercolor style and colorfully depicts the journeys of three Victorian women traveling the world. Important lessons are tucked into silly premises; one video asks, "Can geography save your life in case of, say, a zombie apocalypse?" TED-Ed is all about quality, and, just like the content for grown-ups, these inquisitive, encouraging videos are absolutely addictive.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
