Twig is a video-based education platform for mostly high school students. With Twig, there’s no need to search the internet for safe, age-appropriate content that is going to engage your students – it’s all been done for you. Twig is matched with IB Curriculum
Twig’s award-winning resources use world-class film footage to engage and inspire students. Whether tracking tarantulas in the rainforest or chasing storms in Tornado Alley, Twig films are guaranteed to captivate your class and relate classroom learning to the real world.
Twig films can be used in a variety of different ways – as an introduction to a new topic, to illustrate the topic as you teach it, as reinforcement or for revision. You can ask pupils to log in to the Twig website at home and watch a film in advance of a class so that they arrive for a lesson ready to talk about what they have learnt.
The onscreen key words, closed captions and downloadable transcripts make Twig films accessible to students with additional support needs or those whose second language is English. Exploring the Twig Mindmap allows students to see how different topics relate to one another. The films use examples from real life to demonstrate how different topics, and even subjects, connect outside the classroom. These cross-curricular links can take students on a journey of discovery and fire them with curiosity to find out more.
