- Teacher pack includes both collaborative and student-directed activities, role-play scenario prompts, picture book suggestions, a plethora of additional videos to support further learning, and an interactive video.

Art Movements in Context
Understanding a work of art also requires the context in which it was created, as there are often historical events, political attitudes, societal norms and trends that influenced the artist’s choices.
These three videos explore well known and popular art movements that are commonly taught in Art and Design classrooms as they are so influential on modern art and because students enjoy learning about them. The videos are a helpful introduction for secondary and tertiary students of art history.

As technology becomes increasingly integrated in our daily lives, it is crucial to understand the size and impact of our digital footprint. This comprehensive four-part series, featuring experts from the London School of Economics and Cardiff University, explains why our online data is important, how it can be used for helpful and harmful purposes and what we can do to keep it secure.
The important ideas included are:
- ‘Big data’ is a valuable asset for organisations and governments.
- Hiding in the data we place online is knowledge that can inform and help people, but that can also cause harm if we aren’t careful.
- How and why different organisations collect your data, with reference to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
- Online privacy is not just about the password to your email account.
This series is designed for GCSE Computer Science; A-Level Computer Science.
Written by Mike McRae, produced and directed Sascha Karner, graphics by Rob Wilby and sound by Elliott Klein.
