Other links

Places to find free images


My favourite source of videos is the Internet Archive (Moving Image Archive).  Try the Animation and Cartoons, Animation Shorts, Comedy or NASA collections.


My favourite source of music files is the collection by composer Kevin MacLeod on Incompetech.  You can search for music by mood or genre.  You will need to acknowledge the composer if you use his music in a project.

4. Formative Assessment Session

Links to resources below.  Don’t forget to search for existing quizzes where possible, before creating something from scratch.  Save or “favourite” the quiz so you can find it easily in the future.  In many cases you can also copy/duplicate the quiz and then edit it if it doesn’t quite suit your needs.
