animations and YouTube

Over on the post-conference blog, I popped in a little item about the fact that YouTube can contain a wealth of educational resources, despite attempts by some teachers in Britain to get it banned from schools. Pretty topical, given that Stephen Heppell (see earlier post) showed an example of school children producing their own weekly news and information programme. His attitude to educators complaining about the content on the site was to tell them to go and fill it with as much decent material as possible instead of complaining. By way of lending him a little support, those of you interested in how modern computer animation can be used to describe complex scientific processes and ideas, will find this video fascinating.
