We love free stuff at Electric Chalk so Teachers’ TV occupies a wee niche in our hearts. For those of you in not in the UK or who haven’t come across it, Teachers’ TV is a digital channel aimed at spacemen…sorry, teachers. There are tonnes of programmes about hot topics in UK education as well as practical hints and tips for teaching and non-teaching staff.
The programmes are broadcast on TV but also streamed on the Teachers TV website and made available to download under the Creative Archive License agreement (sign-up required, UK only).
I’ve just been watching the latest instalment in the “From Good to Outstanding” series about developing teachers’ skills to OFSTED’s “outstanding” criteria and it contains plenty of good exemplar stuff on pedagogy and classroom management.
If you’re school has a learning platform I’d strongly recommend putting up a link on your staff area and highlighting programmes with a particular link to issues in your school.
