Inclusive teaching and learning
Many learners struggle to engage with formal education. This can be for a range of reasons and there's no simple answer to any of them. This site is about reducing the barriers to engagement wherever possible. It will often focus on technology but that's only because technology has a lot to offer in many contexts. Other 'human based' approaches can be just as effective so they'll also get space when they cross the horizon.

Always useful to have an alternative to Skype! I like the option to record and upload to YouTube.

Numberphile - Videos about Numbers and Stuff

Short videos about numbers, maths and all sorts of other numbery stuff. We'll make you love numbers!

Via John Dalziel
alistairm 's insight:

Really nice videos and the ones I sampled were subtitled too - good for accessibility and also for use with people where English is a non-native language.

John Dalziel's curator insight, January 29, 2013 4:07 PM

These videos reveal some of the mystery behind numbers and maths in fun, short snippets! The Numberphile videos could provide excellent openers for maths classes.
Use Triptico, or similar tools, to select learner groups and to allocate a different video for each group to watch. Learners can learn a new maths “trick” or pattern to teach their peers. The goal: to creatively teach the concept! They could create their own video, stop motion animation, infographic, story, illustration, Helloslide, etc.

Note: All of the videos on Numberphile are YouTube videos.
