BBC Skillswise

BBC Skillswise – full of all sorts of useful stuff for numeracy and literacy, with Core Curriculum references. Aimed at Entry 3 and Level 1 learners the site had a major makeover in September 2011 and there are now plans to introduce E1-2 and L2 resources. The 100 new 1 minute videos are brilliant for introducing maths and English in an embedded learning situation.
The site includes:

  • an English section with videos, fact sheets, worksheets, games and quizzes.
  • an equally good Maths section again with videos, games, quizzes, worksheets and fact sheets.
  • a fabulous new Job Skills section split into four areas: private sector, public sector, self-employment and job seekers.

Major BBC Skillswise update!

I’ve just quickly updated the link information above to reflect the changes in the redeveloped BBC Skillswise site. Am still exploring – and, as I’ve added above to Han’s original review, I absolutely love the new videos.
If you discover any new gems on the site do add your comments below.
