Free Lessons For Students Online
The wonderful humans at Scholastic have made a series of their lessons and educational resources available for primary and high school students for free! These online lessons run similar to a school lesson and will see students consuming content before completing a series of activities. This is a great way to engage students in their learning while they're at home. Another reason we love these resources are the diverse range of topics they cover.
Whilst the Singapore Airlines Innovation Challenge ran in 2019, they now have a series of high-quality free resources and challenges available for free on their website for students around the world to build their skills as they innovate and create to redesign the airline industry. This is a great series of challenges to set students to building experience in project-based, cross-curricular learning while they're around home.
Online Coding Lessons For Kids
Looking for interactive online learning for your kids? Look no further than Codemakers. Codemakers are a fantastic online platform that teaches primary school students to code in Minecraft. Students join a small class of up to four students with a teacher and through an online video the class complete a series of challenges together in a Minecraft world as they learn to code at the same time! Fun, engaging and exciting!
TED Talks In Education
An offshoot of the regular TED Talks that are watched by people around the world, TED-Ed provides a series of videos and lessons targeted at students in primary and high school students. Everything is totally free and on the site, you'll find videos linked with quizzes, extension activities and research projects. A great way to inspire and educate your students on a range of real-world topics.
Google AI Experiments
Engaging Low-Tech Challenges For Students
Google are doing some pretty exciting work when it comes to openly investigating how we use technology. A great example of this is the Google AI Experiments. This is an open-source initiative from google showcasing some of the interesting experiments and projects that Google has been working on.
This is somewhat like the science experiments at home books but for the digital age and they are great for kids!
Articles And Videos On Social Innovation
Social Space is an online publication produced by our friends at Singapore Management University. This publication focusses on 'Social Innovation' and showcases some of the top stories, projects and initiatives happening in communities around the world. We love this resource as it gets learners thinking outside of the box and considering what they can do to make a difference in their local community.
