BBC Video Nation Network

"Your views and experiences on camera and online"

Video Nation is based on the social research organisation Mass Observation, set up in 1937. Their aim was to create an "anthropology of ourselves" by studying the everyday lives of ordinary people in Britain. They did this by recruiting a team of observers and a panel of volunteer writers. The Mass Observation archive is currently kept at the University of Sussex, and you can find out more at their Mass Observation website.

Video Nation enable everybody to produce a short video for the web. Video Nation edits the content but hands over control and the final publishing decision to the creator. Video Nation has local production teams who provide all the training and advice contributors need to film successfully. The site also looks for particular subjects or aspects of life and invites contribution from its users.

But ninety years on many peoples' lives are still affected by the war which was meant to 'end all wars'. This series of Video Nation films take a personal look at some of the ways people have been touched by the Great War."

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.

Teachers TV

Teachers TV was the digital channel for everyone who works in schools. Its programmes covered every subject in the curriculum, all key stages and every professional role – from teaching assistant to headteacher. You could watch it on digital cable and satellite and programmes are also available anytime, on-demand and for free on this website. Sadly, along with many other well-known UK agencies active in the education and training sphere including Becta, Teachers TV has fallen foul of cutbacks in UK spending. From the end of March 2011 this terrific source of free education videos and resources aimed at the professional development of teachers has no longer been available.

Luckily its resources are now available on
- TES: http://www.media-and-learning.eu/resource/tes-connect-video-resources
as well as other repositories:
- Promethean Planet: http://www.prometheanplanet.com/en-gb/professional-development/best-prac...
