Our film, Demo: The Movie, touches on ideas about how to teach science, but Jonathan and I would really love to make a documentary with the title “How Should We Teach Science?” Alex Bellos is a populariser of maths who’s been lucky enough to make a Radio 4 documentary exploring how maths is taught in our schools today and looking at the science and evidence which supports different approaches. We’re jealous. You can listen to it by clicking here.

I thought we wanted to make a series about teaching in general?
Which, yes, means we want to make a film about the teaching of science, but I think there’s a bigger story to be told here.
Ah, Jonathan. One day, someone rich and powerful will read these blog posts and think “that’s an interesting idea…I should give these chaps the funding they need to do that”. Until then… well, not sure what we do until then.
“How should we teach? A short film by Alom Shaha and Jonathan Sanderson.”
*That*, I’d watch!
