Find out more about about Creative Commons in education… Read the rest of this entry – Lectures and Podcasts in Science

PulseProject is an interesting collection of video lectures and podcasts in science. It is aimed at university and IBDP-level (or A-level) students and educators as well as the general (well informed) public. Looking through their list of lectures and videos, there is some leaning towards eugenics and psychology, though there are many that might be of specific interest to IB Biology students:

GM Crops and global food security Chris Leaver

Where did you leave your genetic fingerprint? Katharine Wright

Thanks to bimbo1973 from the TES Boards for this one. The UK’s Ministry of Defence has a website called DefenceDynamics, which is multi-disciplinary set of teaching resources. It includes audio, video and lesson plans and takes each topic from the point of view of the UK’s military, sports or news items.

There is also a section for students to access, with access to some of the multimedia resources in the teachers’ area.
