Clipbank

Recommended Posts

Clipbank is an unique and lively resource for 11-16 year-old history students, these 5 TV-ROMs each contain 20-25 filmed news reports from ITN Archive of great 20th century historical events - as they happened.

http://www.channel4.com/learning/microsite...ples/index.html

4Learning's TV-ROMs have all the advantages of CD-ROM delivery with the additional facility of being able to store and play back up to 60 minutes of restructured television footage in near broadcast quality, on a full computer screen.

Integrated and linked with the footage are printable and exportable resources that can be edited and customised, maps, photographs, biographies, a wordbank of definitions, and links to related and approved Websites. The TV-ROMs are fully

related to the National Curriculum and ideal for use on a whiteboard for whole class learning, used for individual study or networked for a whole class.

You can access one of the 5 interactive demonstrations:

THE VIETNAM WAR

USA 1919-80

WORLD WAR 1 AND NAZI GERMANY

WORLD WAR 2

THE COLD WAR

You can access one of the 5 interactive demonstrations at:

Thanks for the information. I will be using this as I can. This seems to me to be a great educational resource. One question though, is there a cost involved with using these TV-ROMs, or are they free to download?
