Dear followers, The Virtual School is hiring teachers, tutors & science presenters
Can you identify with making the best Biology Education available to hundreds of thousands of learners around the world? Then join our education charity team! The project: The Biology Journey | Starting mid-October & for three months, you will form part of a passionate team of outstanding Biology teachers. You will co-create audio recordings of 2-4 minute lessons that explain essential concepts in Key Stage 4 Biology.
Our animators take your audio lessons and turn them into free Open Educational Resource Videos for YouTube and partner websites like TES. The videos will form a Learning Journey on our Open Learning platform ‘Fuse School’, including interactive tests and learning plans for students.
FREE Any child around the world with a PC, tablet or mobile will be able to access these resources completely free of charge.

On February 12, 2013 we celebrate Darwin Day, 204 years after the birth of biology’s revolutionary scientist. Darwin is best known for promoting scientific naturalism over theology combining a number of disciplines to create his theory of natural selection.
Although 19th Century Darwinism came to represent a whole host of revolutionary philosophies around evolution, Darwin himself is famed for establishing that all species have descended over time from common ancestors. Want to learn more….check out our video!
At the Virtual School we are revolutionary too: we are aiming to democratise access to the highest quality learning by revolutionising how education is developed and delivered. In a similar vein to Darwin we’re blending a number of disciplines to explore a new way of creating free engaging high quality mobile education. Revolutionaries stick together so let us celebrate Darwin the launch of our DARWIN DAY 2013 MUSIC VIDEO!

Now the EU Leonardo da Vinci Programme has finished, our time making great educational videos must also come to an end. But it’s been a fantastic experience that none of us will ever forget. To work in such a creative, dynamic and collaborative team has been a dream and the videos couldn’t help but reflect this. You’ll find a little taster of what we’ve been up to below
The ‘Murillos’ are all now on their way conquering the educational media world in their own way. As for me, I’ll be managing the next group in Seville. With backgrounds in all aspects of media I can’t wait to see what they create. To say I’m excited would be an understatement.
