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."
Learning MATH - video lessons
Annenberg Media develops workshops and courses that provide teachers with content and pedagogical learning. Workshop and course resources consist of video, print and Web components that can be used for self-study. "Patterns, Functions, and Algebra" explores the "big ideas" in algebraic thinking, such as finding, describing, and using patterns; using functions to make predictions; understanding linearity and proportional reasoning; understanding nonlinear functions; and understanding and exploring algebraic structure. The course consists of 10 two-and-a-half hour sessions that each include video programming and activities, provided online and in a print guide. The 10th session explores ways to apply the algebraic concepts you've learned in K-8 classrooms. You should complete the sessions sequentially.
Session 1, Algebraic Thinking
Session 2, Patterns in Context
Session 3, Functions and Algorithms
Session 4, Proportional Reasoning
Session 5, Linear Functions and Slope
Session 6, Solving Equations
Session 7, Nonlinear Functions
Session 8, More Nonlinear Functions
Session 9, Algebraic Structure
Session 10, Classroom Case Studies

- Resources categorized by area of knowledge, educational level and language, among others.
- Provides a friendly search engine through intuitive filters.
- Allows the creation of communities around educational resources.
The resources, covering numerous subjects, are available in many formats including video.
HotMath - Free Sample Math Videos
This video repository site is a subsection of the HotMath web site, and to view videos you have to subscribe and pay a fee. There are however a few sample free videos, in which a lively person explains a few concepts of math with 2 perspectives: one of the talking head (Picture-in-Picture) and one of the board on which he's writing.
Edutopia is the tangible embodiment of our vision. Through the Edutopia.org Web site, Edutopia magazine, and Edutopia video, we spread the word about ideal, interactive learning environments and enable others to adapt these successes locally. Edutopia.org contains a deep archive of continually updated best practices, from classroom tips to recommendations for districtwide change. Allied with a dedicated audience that actively contributes success stories from the field, our mission relies on input and participation from schools and communities.

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:

"KQED Education Network engages with community and educational organisations to broaden and deepen the impact of KQED media to effect positive change"
The Education section gives more information on how to use media for education through:
* Featured Lesson Plan
* Examples of digital storytelling
And if you log in, you can access media resources for education.
On the Digital Storytelling section (http://dsi.kqed.org/index.php/inspirations) you can find out more about
* Annual Digital Storytelling Contest and Festival for high school students
* Featured Projects such as youth stories from South Africa created at the 5th World Summit on Media and Children.
* Digital Storytelling: Watch stories, explore narrative, investigate new technologies and check out resources that have to do with digital storytelling. Including Mobile Projects such as "'Scape the Hood", the first gps-enabled mobile media project:
"Scape the Hood was conceived and designed as a locative storytelling project for the Digital Storytelling Initiative at KQED for the opening of the 8th annual Digital Storytelling Festival. We convened a group of storytellers, artists, and technologists to envision what this project could be. It became a narrative archeology experiment, combining digital storytelling and emerging technology by overlaying a virtual landscape on the physical world. As originally designed, the audience walks the streets and listens to the neighbourhood stories, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells from both the physical and the virtual world."
