Using the Resource

The 'Ideas Storage Zone' movie is intended to spark off discussion about how ideas are organised. After viewing the movie (make sure you have sound turned on!) you and your students can use the sources on the main page to discuss how items and ideas are classified.

In England and Wales, this can be used in classrooms to support Philosophy for Children (P4C) discussions as well as providing an accessible introduction to taxonomy for ICT at GCSE level - particularly relevant to "Exchanging and sharing information". The resource is centred on information literacy.

Primarily, however, the purpose of the resource is to act as an initial "spark" resource to stimulate students' own cross-curricular research projects.
