RTE has won plenty of praise recently for its Home Shool Hub aimed at primary school students, but its the older kids who will benefit from the national broadcaster’s latest announcement.

This is a really good list on online revision sites – All high school levels/subjects. Ignore if it says A-level and you are doing the leaving cert! It’s the same level – maybe a little more involved which isn’t a bad thing…

This is your chance to use all the open resources from Khan Academy to YouTube to Podcasts – think outside the box here!

These are a series of images to show effective ways to study!

Use of time
Using images to study
Locking your ideas down in an exam

Even if we end up with a computer-based exam – have blank paper to write out your ideas once you’ve read the questions

Plan for Essays
Use a stick man plot to figure out how to remember all the characters/themes and plot! Someone always dies in Shakespeare!
Use images to learn poetry – use YouTube to read them too you!
Timelines to plot subject detail out
Image-based Geography study
Be inventive how you learn languages!
How to study from good images! work up to more detail…
Make the subject you are trying to learn!
Take the textbook and make it relatable!
Another example of image learning! See real foods .. not lists…
