PS for Teachers. New site mixes personal storytelling with active citizenship learning.

I’ve written about BBC Cymru Wales’s PS site before. PS now has a brand new sister site for teachers.  As producer Nia M Davies says PS for Teachers is all about using personal stories to “engage young people aged 14-19 in Personal and Social Education.” It’s a bilingual site, in English and Welsh. Topics tackled include: 

Active citizenship
Health and emotional well-being
Moral and spiritual development
Preparing for lifelong learning
Sustainable development and global citizenship

There are personal videos to watch and show, lesson plans and an invitation for students to upload their own digital stories, video diaries and other experience-based videos.  Class discussion topics are suggested and there are freely downloadable PDF factsheets.

This looks like a really useful new set of resources for teachers of PSE. And it’s great to see personal stories captured on video being used to encourage young people to become more active citizens and to make changes to their lives.
