Teachers, lighten your load in the classroom and bring out the very best in your students with the incredible Shedding Light series.
Teaching, at its most basic level, involves two equally important parts:
• giving instructions,
• explaining facts,
• demonstrating a skill etc.
guiding students as they
Our “Shedding Light” video series brilliantly help teachers take care of Part 1, and our student activity sheets brilliantly allow students to reach their full potential during Part 2.
- if your text book is a little too dry and uninspiring (not to mention wordy), and
- if you have a lot of students who are visual learners and who learn best when they see animations and demonstrations, and
- if you are tired of trying to find good online videos that are pitched at the right level and that cover the content that you need covering…
then our Shedding Light resources are for you.
Here are the four Shedding Light series that we have produced so far.
Each series covers an entire unit of work.
|The 8-part Shedding Light on Atoms series|
|The 8-part Shedding Light on Motion series|
|The 6-part Shedding Light on Light series|
|The 3-part Shedding Light on Energy series|
We invite you therefore to
- browse our videos,
- download our worksheets and prac sheets, and
- read each program’s transcript
so that you can see for yourself what a difference they will make in your classroom.
- outstanding student activity sheets so your students can immediately put what they’re learning into action;
- answers to all the questions, which makes your life easier;
- fully annotated transcripts that act as a text book for when students want to, for example, consult tables or read definitions;
In addition, all of our programs are broken up into small sections that are between 5 and 10 minutes long, which makes your lesson planning really easy.
For example, see our Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons page.
Sure you can find educational videos on video-sharing sites, but education is not just showing kids things, it’s more about getting kids to put what they’ve learned into practice. You would never show kids a video about how to play a guitar and then not actually give them a guitar to play!
And why is that?
Because they make teaching and learning much easier for everyone!
So lighten your load in the classroom and get hold of one or more Shedding Light series today!
Shedding Light on Atoms
Shedding Light on Motion
Shedding Light on Light
Shedding Light on Energy
The preview video below contains a six-minute excerpt followed by a one-minute trailer.
Read a transcript of the program (complete with dozens of screen grabs) on the Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons page. The transcript acts as a text book which students can use together with the video, or on its own!
“It’s so good having such a great resource for teaching light. Having the Shedding Light videos was a huge help.”

Well done and thanks again.”

Who We Are
Liacos Educational Media is made up of Yours Truly, Spiro Liacos, and my wife Georgina Liacos. We both work part-time as teachers, but I am very proud to say that, thanks to the thousands of teachers who liked what they saw when they came to our website, we have also become one of the premier producers of science-related educational materials in Australia.
I don’t consider our Shedding Light videos to be our “products” because I use them all with my own students. My colleagues all use them extensively as well, and my students (both the ones I actually teach and the other students at my school) are constantly telling me how much they enjoy watching them. They like the fact that every concept is explained in detail and that we also explain how the Science relates to them and to the world that they live in.
Using the Shedding Light videos in my classrooms makes it far easier to teach the topics of Motion, Chemistry, Light, and Energy, and I have seen the levels of engagement and of achievement both really soar.
You can read more about us on our About Us page, but you’re probably better off previewing one or more of our Shedding Light series, because, ultimately, we just want to help students learn Science more effectively. And I’m guessing you do too.
