TIB AV-Portal

The TIB AV-Portal is a web-based platform for quality-tested scientific videos from the realms of technology/engineering, architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. Amongst other things, the videos portray computer visualisations, learning material, simulations, experiments, interviews, and recordings of lectures and conferences. A key feature of the portal is the use of different automated video analyses. The added value: these video analyses enable pinpoint searches within the video content.

The Competence Centre for Non-Textual Materials at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) started developing the portal in cooperation with the Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering, in July 2011. The TIB AV-Portal went online in spring 2014.

The TIB AV-Portal can be used to search easily for scientific videos from the fields of science and technology, and to cite and publish such videos in a simple manner. In addition, numerous videos can be downloaded, licensed or ordered on DVD.

The TIB AV-Portal focuses mainly on scientific videos from the six core subjects of the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB):

Technology/Engineering
Architecture
Chemistry
Information Technology
Mathematics
Physics

In 2012, TIB acquired the media stock of IWF gGmbH. In addition to videos from the realms of science and technology, this stock also contains videos from the following subject areas:

Biology
Ethnology
Geological Sciences
History
Arts and Media
Medicine
Sports
Environmental Sciences/Ecology

Scientific videos mainly from TIB’s core subjects will be newly acquired for the TIB AV-Portal.

NOVA Education

NOVA's free digital resources for educators in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics includes videos, audio segments, lesson plans, and interactives designed to facilitate effective classroom integration. Coming from the PBS network, this collection includes lesson plans, collections, and webinars.

Brainpop

BrainPOP is a suite of digitally animated products that presents curriculum-based topics for students in grades K-8. The site strives to spark curiosity while delivering introductory material covering a wide range of topics. BrainPOP is subscription-based.

GOALS

BrainPOP strives to spark curiosity while delivering introductory material covering a wide range of topics. The site is organized into myriad modules, each of which showcases a short movie on a particular topic, accompanied by quizzes, interactive activities, and learning games. BrainPOP also creates monthly featured playlists on broader “Spotlight” topics such as ancient civilizations or cyberbullying.

The eponymous product, BrainPOP targets students in grades 3-8; BrainPOP Jr. is geared for students in K-3; other products (i.e. BrainPOP Español, BrainPOP ESL, etc.) have been created for other specific audiences. BrainPOP is also home to GameUp, an online learning games portal featuring vetted titles developed by leading game publishers. BrainPOP Educators is a hub for free professional development, teacher tools, and best practices.

APPROACH

Teachers select a topic to teach, and watch the movie with their class. They can then use the quiz provided by BrainPOP or use the materials provided to engage their classroom with the topic at hand. Additional modules related to the initially chosen topic are also displayed on the site.

Alternatively, teachers can assign movies and activities to be watched and completed. Available with certain subscriptions, the "My BrainPOP" suite of features allow teachers to track students’ progress through the work. Students can also view their past progress using My BrainPOP.

BrainPOP activities and quizzes align with a variety of standards, including the Common Core State Standards; educators can search for movies and activities by state or national standards, grade level and subject.

IMPLEMENTATION

BrainPOP’s is primarily a web-based tool available for any browser running Flash. Apps are also available for all major platforms, including iOS and Android, though not all features are available on all versions of the app. A projector screen or large television may be used when watching movies as a class.

MIT Blossoms

BLOSSOMS video lessons are enriching students' learning experiences in high school classrooms from Brooklyn to Beirut to Bangalore. Its Video Library contains over 50 math and science lessons, all freely available to teachers as streaming video and Internet downloads and as DVDs and videotapes.
The BLOSSOMS Video Library contains lessons to use in your classroom. Every lesson is a complete resource that includes video segments, a teacher’s guide, downloadable hand-outs and a list of additional online resources relevant to the topic. MIT carefully crafts each BLOSSOMS lesson to make your classroom come alive. Each 50-minute lesson builds on math and science fundamentals by relating abstract concepts to the real world. The lessons intersperse video instruction with planned exercises that engage students in problem solving and critical thinking, helping students build the kind of gut knowledge that comes from hands-on experience. By guiding students through activities from beginning to end, BLOSSOMS lessons give students a sense of accomplishment and excitement.
While MIT faculty members and partnering educators in Jordan and Pakistan created the first BLOSSOMS lessons, today educators from around the world create and submit BLOSSOMS modules. MIT Blossoms welcomes contributors to join their international online community to learn more about their videos and to engage with educators worldwide who are looking for ways to enrich their students' classroom experiences and share their ideas.
