TEDEducation – Icebergs, The Arctic and Antarctica

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 !

Khan Academy – Videos for Learning

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.
