Wild Web Woods - Online Game

Wild Web Woods is a online game commissioned by the Council of Europe and designed to help children learn basic Internet safety rules. The game also promotes such key concepts and values underlying the work of the Council of Europe as democracy, respect for others and children’s rights. The game, mainly for children between 7 and 10, is available in more than 20 languages and is supported by a teacher’s guide to assist educators in helping children to use the Internet safely and responsibly. The Guide is structured in eight lessons which provide educators with explanations, tips and practical exercises for children on topics such as managing online identity, learning about children’s rights, how much time they should spend online, privacy and security.

Twig

Twig is a comprehensive set of brand new 3 minute films, combining rigorous research with stunning visuals to support inspirational science teaching in the classroom or at home.

You can find films through a mindmap mapping all films related to the subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Earth Science. Each subject is linked with 2 categories of films: core films that highlight the key curriculum learning points of a topic, and context films that encourage more general learning and contextual application of the learning points in the core films.

In mid-2011 the website contained over 500 films, including footage from the BBC. Twig can be used by teachers in class and by pupils from 8 years old at home. Each film includes lesson plans, supporting learning materials, and quizzes exploring the core learning points.

ExploreLearning - experience Math & Science with Gizmos

ExploreLearning offers a catalog of modular, interactive simulations in math and science for teachers and students in grades 6-12. These simulations are called Gizmos, which are flexible to support many different teaching styles and contexts and designed as supplemental curriculum materials that support state and national curriculum standards; in addition, Gizmos help teachers bring research-proven instructional strategies to their classrooms.

"Watch one of our demonstration movies. In particular, the "Introduction to ExploreLearning" movie is perfect for the first-time visitor to ExploreLearning. (It runs about 8 minutes but covers everything.) In addition, we have five Teaching with Gizmos movies that show how you might teach a specific lesson using Gizmos."

BioVisions

Research in the biological sciences often depends on the development of new ways of visualizing important processes and molecules. Indeed, the very act of observing and recording data lies at the foundation of all the natural sciences. The same holds true for the teaching and communication of scientific ideas; to see is to begin to understand. The continuing quest for new and more powerful ways to communicate ideas in biology is the focus of BioVisions at Harvard University.

The potential of multimedia in the area of biology education has yet to be fulfilled. Indeed, multimedia as a means of imparting biological information is years behind its use in other areas such as entertainment. BioVisions is meant to close this gap by combining the highest quality multimedia development with rigorous scientific models of how biological processes occur. In addition, this new generation of science visualizations are not meant to simply be simulations or mirrors held up to reality, rather they are designed with a specific pedagogical goal in mind. This means that each decision made on how to represent a given biological process also includes consideration of how best to visually communicate particular aspects of the process.

BioVisions is based on a collaborative community of Harvard scientists, teaching faculty, students, and multimedia professionals. It is directed by Dr. Robert A. Lue, who founded BioVisions with generous and continuing support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Harvard University.
