BibMe is a free automated citation creator and bibliography generator. It uses external databases to fill citation information: after that it compiles the bibliography and formats references following the guidelines specified by the most recent editions of each style guide. It is also possible to enter citations manually. A citation guided is also provided to students for them to learn about style guidelines for citing references.
BibMe provides with the possibility to save as many bibliographies as wanted and to access and edit them on the Web at any time. Bibliographies can be shared and downloaded in a .rtf file. It is also possible to assign categories and tags to individual citations in order to find them easily and filter citations across all compiled bibliographies.
It started in January 2007 as a student project with the aim to avoid passing hours on formatting bibliographies, thus saving time, better served working on the paper.
At present the web site is somewhat overloaded with advertisement and it may be less attractive to use with students.

Cineclub - the young filmmakers network
Cineclub was launched in 2004 aiming to create a network of young filmmakers in the UK who create, watch and share films with each other. Cineclub's membership programme provides training and resources for teachers to set up film projects during curriculum time or as an out of school hours activity and the chance to share work publically at cinema venues across the year. As a sustainable and cost-effective model, more teachers are trained each year so the medium of film can broaden within the school curriculum. Cineclub aims to be as inclusive to as many schools as possible so their Gold membership model is just £395 for annual membership which includes training for 2 teachers and cinema screenings of the students work.

Level 7, created in 2010 by Careersbox (UK - http://www.careersbox.co.uk), is a modular job application and interview techniques film programme. Aimed at students who are preparing for the world of work, who are often confronted with a disconnect in what is expected by the commercial world and what resources are available to the education world, this project is meant to better prepare and inform young people around the expectations of an employer whilst supporting teachers with an engaging technology based platform to help them do their job more effectively.
This program is designed to offer real employer feedback to help guide young people (aged 14-17) into the world of work. They, as well as information, advice and guidance professionals across all UK schools can use the resources. Due to its delivery method (online, as well as embedded in to schools’ Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs), on DVD), Level 7 has been used in a number of contexts but its primary use has been in careers guidance, citizenship and work readiness classes and it can be used in the classroom, at home or with parents or other key influencers.
The pay-off for the employer audience is better prepared applicants who can make the most of their opportunity to join an organisation and Level 7 can help young people raise their confidence levels when seeking employment.
A more detailed description of the project is available in the Showcase on the MEDEA Awards website: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/level-7
