What is Tigtag World?

Tigtag World is a digital video-based resource designed to help teachers to deliver engaging and accurate science and geography instruction to students aged 7–11. Created by an award-winning team of teachers and producers, each of Tigtag’s short videos has been crafted using the best available documentary footage from sources including NASA, the BBC and Getty Images. Tigtag World videos offer information in a concise visual format, making topics accessible through the use of real-world examples.

Tigtag videos come in a range of categories:

  • Curriculum videos provide core learning, directly aligned to national and international curricula.
  • Context videos place learning in real-world settings, encouraging students to see how science impacts the world around them.
  • Tidbits are short iInteractive videos designed to encourage student participation.
Tigtag World features more than 1,000 videos, alongside lesson background materials, activities, quizzes, visuals, and review questions.
All content is mapped to KS2 learning objectives and so using Tigtag fulfils OFSTED criteria. It is also perfect for the more able or inquisitive student at KS1.

Tigtag World includes rich background information for non-specialist science teachers, to ensure they can stretch the more able students. For time-poor teachers, comprehensive lesson plans with a range of activities for all budgets help spend time effectively..

The videos are extremely good. The lesson ideas and visuals are also helpful on occasions. The site is also well-organised and contains subjects which extend knowledge beyond the curriculum.

Claire Turner found Tigtag World:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    The content is very useful, but I couldn't say it improves attainment on its own. It's the way you use content that makes a difference to attainment, not the content itself.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The videos explain concepts very clearly and also help to extend knowledge beyond the curriculum.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    It saves me time when I need a way to explain something - the videos are usually extremely relevant. I also use the lesson ideas sometimes. The visuals are also helpful on occasions.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    As above - it saves time when looking for a way of explaining something.
  • Not saves school money
    It costs money!
