What's available on this website?

Our Space is a website for young people and educators to discover and download videos, pictures and other digital resources to use in their own video stories, 'mashups', projects or resources, all available completely FREE OF CHARGE!

All of the material on this site has been made available for use under a special license for educational purposes only. It has been provided through the generosity of a range of Partners, and as long as it is used responsibly and for genuinely educational, non-commercial purposes only, and is not distributed further afield, you can use it as creatively and inventively as you wish!

Many of the resources here are ideal for use right across the curriculum, including in Science, Media Studies and English, but we look forward to hearing and seeing how you put them to use!
