About the GEO Network
We have built a small experimental recording studio to develop new and effective ways to broadcast a range of educational material (not only science) to schools via the Internet. The first key aim is to pioneer an approach which will enable individuals to record educational presentations in response to teachers needs but also retain sufficient flexibility to give the freedom presenters need to exercise their individual creativity and maintain enthusiasm. The immediate focus is however not just students, but their teachers – we still believe the teacher is the vital medium and they need as much help as possible.
We hope to empower teachers by giving them access to the best teaching materials and presentation techniques garnered worldwide, packaged for almost immediate use in the classroom. The second key aim is to catalyse the creation of similar sites to set off a chain reaction and so create a coherent synergistic network of mutually interacting sites hopefully on a global scale.
