What is a TECvideo?

These online, interactive videos are a radical and innovative way to use videos in the classroom. Watch the video then answer questions as they come along either during the video, or as a summary check at the end. These questions come in multiple formats like ture or false, fill in the blank, multiple choice and more.

Built-in activities

As you watch the video, curriculum-linked questions or activities will pop up that are relevant to the section of the video you just watched. From matching facial expressions to drag and drop, colouring-in or games for the entire class, there are activities to engage with every child or student. When a TECvideo covers multiple themes you can turn on or off certain question sets, this is done via Timelines. 

Introducing Timelines...

Depending on what you're teaching or what you want your child or student to learn you can turn on different timelines. Each timeline focuses on a particular aspect of the content from the video. For example if a video has questions on grammar and some questions on spelling you could choose to have both timelines turned on, just one timeline or have both off and just watch the video.

Cloud Controls

As all TECvideos are hosted within The Education Cloud, all the resources come with the fantastic management controls you've come to expect from Education Umbrella.

Students can watch the videos without registering or logging in. Once you purchase a video just share the activation code with them and they will be able to watch instantly as long as you have copies available.

If you're buying it on behalf of a school or as a gift, you can send TECvideo(s) to somebody else via an email address after purchase.

Description

Greek children are being taken to Crete and sacrificed to a terrifying creature that lives under the ground in a labyrinth. Thesues the hero promises to save them, but even he needs help. His nerve tingling ordeal and daring escape leave him free to return home, but what he has not bargained for is that his behaviour will catch up with him.

This atmospheric story, more legend than myth, shows that heroic status is often undermined by human frailty. It is only when we get to the early Middle Ages that we come across heroes without flaws, making the characters less rounded and less honest. The Greeks give us people whose heroic traits we can aspire to whilst also giving us a certain satisfaction in seeing them destroy themselves.
