The BBC have done it again with a fabulous website for learning and teaching.
BBC teachers has a raft of information for teachers and students including:
- video clips on BBC programs
- lesson plans
- BBC iPlayer
- links, activities and resources.
Although obviously primarily aimed at the UK and Ireland, BBC teachers has some useful content for teachers in Australia and beyond.
I think this is a great site but have you found that you can’t play the video clips? It says “not available in your area” when I try. I don’t think I’ve had any luck with the BBC iPlayer in the past either. It’s a shame but the rest of the BBC resources are great.
You are right Kathleen that the iPlayer is currently only available in the UK, but hopefully that may change soon.
Those of us who live and work outside Australia often have similar problems with some Australian video clips. I have been told that this is a copyright issue.
