Teachers TV

To benefit from the educational resources of international colleagues, American teachers don’t have to swim across the Atlantic—they can simply surf the web.

Teachers TV, based in the United Kingdom, features videos and video podcasts that can accompany lesson plans or advise teachers on classroom instruction. Funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for Children, Schools and Families, Teachers TV is a television channel and an online resource for teachers.

Certain topics covered by videos on the site, like law, aren’t relevant for American students, but most address topics that students in U.S. classrooms want to learn more about, including poverty, bugs, and climate. Some videos on the site cannot be viewed from American computers and deciding which video is appropriate for your students may require conversion (key stages into grades).
