The Virtual School: calling all biologists!

Posted by on September 11, 2012

Guest blog by Frédéric Kastner from The Virtual School

The Virtual School’s vision is to create an innovative, free education resource that allows children from all over the world to learn about biology. To help us achieve this we’re asking for support from passionate biologists, whatever their background.

You can share your love of biology and help inspire a new generation of scientists by recording a fun 2-3 minute audio presentation. The Virtual School designers will then add images and memory triggers to your voiceover and create an engaging lesson for the KS3 and 4 curricula (that’s 11-14 year olds, and 14-16 years olds).


Interested?  Here’s how to get involved:

  1. You record your 2-3 min audio explanations with our easy-to-use online tool. It is an easy and fun process!
  2. Our design team enhances your explanations using effective imagery & other memory triggers to make your lesson even more impactful.
  3. The final learning resources are engaging 2-3 minute learning videos for each concept across the KS3 & 4 curricula.

You can watch an example playlist about ecology on our YouTube channel by following this link.

If you’re keen to take part or have any questions please get in touch:

By contributing to the Virtual School you can help us build an amazing, free education programme to bring the best biology teaching to children who need it most, in the UK and globally. Thank you for your support.
