Welcome to > teachers > teachers tv



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not all of the videos are here – most notably the Maths for Real series, featuring a young Ben Shepherd has been withdrawn by Channel 4 – but there is enough quality to make this a really useful set of resources
.

I have divided all the Secondary Maths videos up into the following groups. I hope you find them useful

1. Videos for use in the maths classroom
2. Examples of excellent maths teaching and fantastic ideas
3. Non-mathematical videos
4. Carol Vorderman's "Maths of Life" Series (not technically Teachers TV, but what a great set of 5 videos!)
