ClickView 6.2: Delivering ‘classroom-ready’ TV recordings to schools
This term, a big talking point concerning video in the classroom has been around delivering 'classroom-ready' TV recordings to teachers and students. TV is full of educationally-valuable content for your classroom. Whether it be a documentary, news story, or feature film, at ClickView we want to assist teachers in finding educational TV programmes and adding ‘classroom-ready’ TV recordings into their lesson plans. Our recent focus has, therefore, been on how to enhance the ClickView product with features that will give teachers the best experience with our TV recording service, ClickView 24-7. (more…)

Celebrate Cultural Diversity this Harmony Day

Celebrate Cultural Diversity this Harmony Day
On 21st March each year, students and teachers across Australia don orange in support of Harmony Day, a day to celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity. It is a day which promotes inclusion, respect, and learning about others. Australians are encouraged to share the stories of their heritage, over a delicious multicultural feast.

Let’s Get Personal – New Release, ClickView v5.9

Let’s Get Personal – New Release, ClickView v5.9
One of things I love most about my job is how we get to work closely with educators to ensure that our product is on the right track and going to meet the needs of teachers and students. In fact, just a week ago, I sat down and had a face-to-face chat at the ClickView office with two flipped teachers about ClickView flipped channels. That one-hour meeting was extremely valuable because again we received direct feedback from educators and their suggestions have now influenced how we will further develop the product. (more…)

Tackling Racism with ClickView

Tackling Racism with ClickView
March 21 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The Day was started by the United Nations in 1966 and is designed to remind us about the profound damage to individuals and societies caused by racial discrimination and spur people to work towards eliminating racism.

Mark International Women’s Day with ClickView

Mark International Women’s Day with ClickView
Tuesday 8 March marks International Women’s Day. This year the Day’s theme is #PledgeForParity, while women continue to contribute significantly to cultural, economic, social and political achievements around the world there is still much progress to be made in reaching gender parity. In fact, in 2015 the World Economic Forum made the sobering projection that at its current rate of change gender parity would not be achieved until 2133. From the pivotal women of the Middle Ages to the rise of contemporary feminism we here at ClickView have curated videos from the ClickView Exchange to…
