TED-Ed has an excellent collection of videos on many aspects of the curriculum. They are engaging for visual learners and initiate collaborative discussion and create interest when opening a new topic area. This short informative video about icebergs could be an opener for the study of Antarctica for our Year 5 students or for a Secondary Geography lesson.
And now, just posted yesterday, here is a video on The Arctic vs. the Antarctic by Camille Seaman !
This collection of “Not-made-for-kids videos for kids. Watched & collected by Rion Nakaya with her 2 & 5 year olds” has many video links sorted into learning/interest areas – Science, Technology, Space, Animals, Food, DIY, Music, Art and Animation.
This site is for the visual learner. Film-maker Brady Haran has asked researchers at Nottingham Trent University about their favourite scientists and a collection of videos are presented on this site. The facts presented and the wonderful illustrations make this way of learning lots of fun.
The new site ABC Splash is full of resources – video clips, audio clips and games – all aimed at assisting students in new curriculum focus areas.
The ABC and ESA have teamed up to bring primary and secondary students and teachers world-class Australian resources
This website (with recently released free App) has a wealth of videos on educational topics – mathematical concepts, biology, art, history and more. Secondary teachers: Integrating one into lesson revision or as a starting place for discussion would work well with these videos. Many are available on YouTube and can therefore be embedded into Moodle lessons.
