Learning and Teaching Scotland videos on iTunes

iTunes U is part of the iTunes store featuring lectures and audiobooks from universities and museums, all available for free. Learning and Teaching Scotland, in typically trailblazing fashion, are leading the charge to add videos aimed at teachers developing and supporting 3-18 education and the new Scottish Primary curriculum, ‘Curriculum for Excellence’. While not games-based, exploiting iTunes in this way is an effective way of using current leisure software for the delivery of educational materials, and could be a conduit for pupil-focussed materials as well as teacher support.

To access the videos you’ll first need to download the free iTunes software, then go to the LTS section on iTunes U.
