Virtual Video Workshop

The Dutch Virtual Workshop was developed by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the University of Groningen and is characterized by a practical approach. The basic principle is that the teacher, inspired by the examples in the workshop, composes his or her own course programme by choosing different modules. You can choose for a guided tour and direct your own personal learning path.

De Dutch Virtual Workshop werd ontwikkeld door de Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam en de Universiteit van Groningen en wordt gekenmerkt door zijn praktische benadering. Het basisprincipe is dat de leerkracht, geïnspireerd door de voorbeelden in de workshop, zijn of haar eigen lesprogramma samensteld door verschillende modules te kiezen. Je kan kiezen voor een begeleide rondleiding of onmiddellijk je eigen persoonlijke leerweg.

Brightstorm

"Brightstorm is an online learning network for teens, teachers and parents. We founded the company with the belief that great learning starts with great teaching and wanted to give every student the opportunity to learn from the world's best teachers. We've assembled recognized teachers from around the country to develop video-based classes, offered in short, personalized formats that map to the way teens consume digital content. Each of our courses cover the core topics commonly taught in high school subjects across the United States and are designed to help high school students in classes where they need additional help in order reach their full potential and do better in school. Our courses complement in-school learning - helping teens fill in gaps and cement their knowledge to improve grades.

For students, they're given the choice of teachers and the opportunity to learn from some of the best teachers. With an on-demand format, students can go at their own pace, choose their own order, and easily jump to any section in the video to parallel their own class to tailor to their own learning needs. Each course includes interactive quizzes, facts as well as bonus materials like practice problems and study guides that they use with the videos to gain a deeper understanding of the subject.

"Free sample episodes are available, but you have to pay to view a course.

"Wendy Adeniji finds 3T's impressive Sonica a real step forward for language learning"

From 2010 all key stage 2 pupils should have the opportunity to learn a foreign language. However, the caveat is that not all KS2 teachers will feel confident in being able to teach this. French might seem to be the safe option, but because Spanish is one of the four major world languages, the Department for Education and Skills commissioned 3T Productions to produce Sonica, a multimedia software package which covers two years' worth of Spanish teaching for non-specialist teachers.
