Videos For Learning

In the ever changing world of education, videos seem to be used increasingly in our learning programmes to get students thinking, prompt discussion, and to just generally engage our amazing students. Luckily the team at Teachers Helping Teachers have set up this video page to make it a bit easier for our members to find appropriate engaging videos.

We would really appreciate your help though! All we need you to do is share the videos that you have used in the past with your students. Simply click the ‘Add Video’ button and paste the URL into the form and we’ll publish it so that others can cut their admin time and use it with their classes. There is an optional comment box where you can describe how you have used the video in your learning programme.
