    First-time poster. I don't know if there's any interest, but I have been developing some videos to help my AQA GCSE students with their Media Studies Video Games Section. They're about Lara Croft Go and Kim Kardashian Hollywood.

    A little bit about me: I hold a PhD in Game Studies which I obtained through UCL in 2015. I have been published in the peer-reviewed journal Game Studies and - prior to my current job - I taught games design for three years.

    These look fantastic. Thanks! We teach CIE, but the ideas are super useful for foregrounding our case study work :)

    I'm thinking that your background could set you up as a media equivalent MR BRUFF (I'm also an English specialist). I'm picking up this spec this year from a teacher who suddenly left so these are excellent! As a teaching resource, your content and indpeth narrative is excellent, but I'd pitch it at much higher level ability gcse students or AS students. I intend to use them for my own CPD, plus set them as homework for my higher level students. This is because a lot of your intellectual theoretical content would be lost on lower ability students.

    Overall a 5 star resource! Thanks so much for sharing! Look forward to seeing you develop your own channel etc...
  5. Have a look at Edusites Media its all content written by examiners

    These are really helpful videos - many thanks for sharing them. I am using with GCSE groups to extend their understanding - it's a difficult topic to teach without these specialist resources.
