Teachers TV - a wonderful resource

Visiting Teachers Television again for another meeting yesterday, I am always taken by the energy and commitment I see there (or passion), to make really high quality programmes for teachers, frequently made by teachers. Click here for the Teachers Television website.

The resources available online and through the Teacher TV channel are really high quality. Research seems to show that younger teachers especially use them but more established teachers less so. This is a real pity as they are a wonderful resource and act as great professional development. With over 3,500 programmes, there really is something there for everyone!

Interestingly, more and more students are watching these programmes as well, especially during school holidays. This gives them more knowledge about their learning - how long before they challenge their teachers on approaches to learning? Wouldn't that be great!
