Planet SciCast Film School
Planet SciCast (UK) is an online repository that shares videos, sent in by children and adults, related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM). Video submitters can access guidelines and a handbook about shooting a video, write-ups of the activities, experiments and demonstrations.
"These pages will help you plan your film, giving you advice about equipment, how to organise your team, and what sorts of things seem to work most reliably. You’ll find most of what’s here in our lovely Handbook, which you can download."

Video: the educational challenge
Lifelong education is more than an extension of existing provision, 'schooling-plus'. An important result of the microtechnology revolution will be to offer a challenge to the practice of education as primarily teacher-centred instruction. Television already plays an enormously influential role in family life; its own transformation, to take account of the arrival of video, cable and other developments, implies a greater appreciation of the fact that audience response is the key to effective educational programming. Meanwhile, students are using video with increasing ease and familiarity and the advent of video discs offers exciting new opportunities. The contribution of video to stimulating imagination, and to a wider and deeper role for education in our changing society, is an intriguing one.
"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.
