About. The third is community. We believe learning should be as rich and varied as the world you're learning about. So with our community we're building a kind of multimedia wonderland of learning, where videos, audio, usage, mnemonics, etymologies and much more bring your learning to life. We believe that every learner is partly a teacher, and we hope that once you get started, you'll soon be supplying little nuggets of wit and wisdom to help the rest of the community as they learn! Anyone can learn anything We believe that learning’s quite simple, and that there’s nothing that can’t be learned with the right help and enthusiasm. Together we are smarter Millions of people have learned what you want to learn. As you learn, you share your ideas to help others, just as you benefit all the time from the ideas other people have shared. This way, we all learn quicker and more effortlessly.

The Adventure of English is a British television series (ITV) on the history of the English language presented by Melvyn Bragg as well as a companion book, also written by Bragg.

The series and the book are cast as an adventure story, or the biography of English as if it were a living being, covering the history of the language from its modest beginnings around 500 AD as a minor Germanic dialect to its rise as a truly established global language. In the television series, Bragg explains the origins and spelling of many words based on the times in which they were introduced into the growing language that would eventually become modern English. 1. Birth of a Language. The modern Frisian language is the closest sounding language to the English used approximately 2000 years ago, when the people from what is now the north of the Netherlands travelled to what would be the United Kingdom and pushed the Celts to the western side of the island. 2.

Best all-rounders Tate, UK Tate galleries were among the first to recognise the value of the internet – both for engaging with visitors, and for offering multimedia exhibition guides.

Their clear, easy-to-use website includes a wide range of blogs; a dedicated Tate Channel of artist video interviews and short films; and no fewer than 16 apps. These are mostly free, and range from the educational, such as the Tate Guide to Modern Art Terms, to the just-for-fun: the Muybridgizer allows you to create an Eadweard Muybridge-style animation using your iPhone camera. Most apps are only available for iPad and iPhone, but Tate is slowly developing availability for Android: I downloaded their guide to the current Roy Lichtenstein show at Tate Modern to my Samsung smartphone, and flicked through a selection of his paintings and scrapbooks from my desk.

Grades 6-8 | Intellego Unit Studies - Core Curriculum and Independent Study. Free Educational Videos for K-12 Students. Connect the Dots | STEM CAMP. But first, they must embrace science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build the skills that will serve as their tool set for the future. For that to happen, we must work together to ignite their curiosity and get them excited about STEM in their everyday lives. So we ask you to join us in connecting the dots between learning and life. Together, we can ignite the spark in students around the clock and around the world. While after-school learning and summer programs provide rich opportunities to keep students inspired beyond the classroom, we know that unequal access to these programs can contribute to disparities in student achievement. STEM Camp combines hands-on labs, engineering challenges, digital investigations, and more - all designed to immerse kids in the grand challenges of science set forth by the National Academy of Engineering.
