Share a video with students once a week to help all of you learn about the chemistry in our everyday lives. Flip your classroom and use a video as homework. Have students take notes on the material and write down questions they still have and topics that confuse them. They can do this with pen and paper or online. If you want the assignment online, explain to students they need to open a new tab in their browser window and take notes with a tool such as Webnote, reviewed here; tell students to be sure to save the URL to share their notes and questions with you and their peers. Or, use a tool like playposit (formerly eduCanon), reviewed here, for students to pause videos and ask or answer questions right on the video. These activities can help uncover student misconceptions. Show the video to the class, and then discuss the concept at length.

In the Classroom

If you teach chemistry, you will want to bookmark this valuable resource. View the videos and explore the site information together or flip your classroom and have students view the videos as an introduction to the material. If full episodes aren't available online in your area, you can still take advantage of the many resources on this site. Be sure to find the video library in the teacher's section with many clips from the original shows. Have students improve their learning by createing a Twitter Fictional Account, reviewed here, about one of the scientists featured in this series. Challenge students to redefine their learning by creating a timeline (with music, photos, videos, and more) using Timeline JS, reviewed here, to visualize the progression of the discoveries of matter.
