Secondary Maths Collection – Teachers TV – Non Mathematical Videos
Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)
Teachers TV was a fantastic resource. It was jam-packed full of videos of excellent teaching practice across all subjects, age ranges and ability levels, stimulating and engaging in-class resources, examples of maths in the real world, studies of how children learn and the most effective ways to address this, behaviour management issues and strategies, and much, much more!
The bad news is that in the midst of all the budget cuts, funding for Teachers TV was removed, and the website closed. The good news is that TES now hosts 3500 Teachers TV videos, so they are available to watch again, completely free.
Due to rights issues, not all of the videos are here – most notably the Maths for Real series, featuring a young Ben Shepherd has been withdrawn by Channel 4 – but there is enough quality to make this a quality set of resources.
Below I have assembled some of the best Teachers TV videos that are not specifically designed for maths teachers, but which are certainly relevant to general good teaching practice. I hope you find them useful.
Behaviour Management is often the number one concern of both NQTs and more experienced teachers. Hopefully these videos will suggest a few useful strategies, and also help reassure you that you are not alone!
Teaching and Learning
It is possible to pick up lots of useful tips, ideas and strategies from observing teachers in other subjects. Often in school this is not possible, so these videos might be the next best thing.
A series of useful videos where a team of “educational gurus” try to find ways to save us all some time!
