Definition: “Teal is a low-saturated color, a bluish-green to dark medium, similar to medium blue-green and dark cyan. It can be created by mixing green with blue into a white base, or deepened as needed with a little bit of black or gray color.[3] The complementary color of teal is coral.[3] It is also one of the initial group of 16 HTML/CSS web colors formulated in 1987.

The first recorded use of Teal as a color name in English was in 1917.[4]” (Wikipedia)

Its name is derived from the Middle English tele, a word akin to the Dutch taling and the Middle Low German telink.[5] As a color, its name is believed to have been taken from the small freshwater Common Teal, a member of the duck family whose eyes are surrounded by this color.[5]

In the TEAL project, Belcher teamed up with Co-Principal Investigators Peter Dourmashkin and David Litster to reformat the teaching of freshman physics at MIT. Technology-enabled active learning is a teaching format that merges lectures, simulations, and hands-on desktop experiments to create a rich collaborative learning experience.
