vidubiology - creative video for Biology
Vidubiology offers exciting and effective ideas on how video and media can support biology learning by providing clear examples of biological themes suitable for the curriculum of students, and great ways that students can use cameras autonomously and collaboratively to enhance their learning.
The project shows how media and video can be used to enhance learning by asking students to create their own videos of biological themes. Vidubiology is an EU-funded Erasmus+ project which aims to improve the teaching and engagement with Biology and science, for lower-secondary students (10 – 14 years).
Project intros, tasksheets and tutorials are all collected on the content page and on the project’s YouTube playlist and Flickr profile.
