In collaboration with mXreality, and working with teams specialising in the subject from Cardiff and Vale College, the Welsh Government has developed an immersive, accessible and expansive 3D metaworld environment, comprising of five areas relating to different themes. They look forward to sharing their experiences, stories and anecdotes with you, and you are invited to engage in an immersive learning experience, which will enhance your understanding of the world. As you explore this world, you are asked to engage with the resources and reflect on their significance. This is an opportunity for you to learn about the cultures and traditions that make up part of our shared identity. The Metaworld consists of the following sections: Experiences The Metaworld of Experiences is situated on a street of representative semi-detached houses in Wales, with access to six houses (three on each side of the street). In each of the houses, you can learn more about the background and interests of the individuals who live there by watching the video playing on the TV and by clicking on some of the interactive items (identified by a three spot icon) in the living room. Immersive Studies The Immersive Studies Metaworld consists of a main lower level area and three upper level areas. The main area has a variety of items of geometrical interest because of their shapes and patterns, which show the connection between mathematics, science and nature. You can learn more about these items by clicking on them. A QR Code is also visible on a panel near some items, which can be scanned with your mobile phone's camera to view a 3D or Augmented Reality (AR) version of the item on your device. The higher level includes: Mathematics room – allows visitors to explore the importance and history of mathematical and geometrical numbers and shapes Hair and Beauty Room – allows visitors to familiarise themselves with the history and origins of hair and beauty Inventions Room – educates visitors about some significant inventions and early contributions to contemporary life World Timeline The World Timeline Metaworld consists of a main central area and four geographic regions, all of which you can access via a tunnel from the central area. Each tunnel displays information that presents the background, identity and image of a representative individual from that region. Each of the four regions (detailed below), comprises four time periods, allowing visitors to experience architecture, images, and representational information in relation to ancient times, medieval times, early modern times, and the world today. The four regions available in this Metaworld are: Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Northern Europe. As you move around the world timeline, in the central area and in each of the regions, interactive items you can click on link to videos that present useful additional information. QR Codes are also available in some of the regions, which can be scanned with your mobile phone's camera to view a 3D or Augmented Reality (AR) version of the item on your device. Curriculum This section allows you to engage with a wide range of carefully crafted topics in order to surmise that their plan will be anti-racist. The section consists of the following topics: Sociology Hair & Beauty Health and Social Care Black Feminism Politics Mathematics Film Studies African philosophy English for speakers of other languages Basic Education for Adults Additional Learning Needs Tutorial

Support for Art and Design teachers and lecturers on raising learners' drawing skills based on GCSEs, AS and A-levels in particular but may also be of interest to staff teaching vocational courses at levels 2 and 3. The package provides useful practical examples showing all the different types of drawing that can be integrated into work plans. As with writing, drawing has many different purposes, and it is important that students are aware of them and convinced of the value of acquiring appropriate skills that will enable them to develop their creative ideas and communicate them visually, in whatever discipline they are studying. The resource pack also includes ten examples of work units that ensure that drawing, particularly observational drawing based on original sources (not photographs), is at the heart of foundation course work plans.

Byd o Liw: Y Rhyfel Mawr (2008)
Yn y rhaglen hon a fydd yn cofio'r Rhyfel Mawr 90 mlynedd ar ôl iddi orffen, mae Osi yn edrych ar gynfas eang o fudiadau celf y cyfnod a ddarluniodd ryfel mewn ffordd gwbl newydd a chwyldroadol. Cyn y Rhyfel Mawr, roedd arlunwyr yn dueddol o ramantu rhyfeloedd a milwyr trwy ddarluniau a oedd yn aml iawn wedi'u comisiynu.Ond mae arlunwyr y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf yn dangos dioddefaint a chreulondeb rhyfel mewn ffyrdd uniongyrchol a blaengar. Fe ddylanwadodd y rhyfel yn drwm ar gynnwys lluniau. Mae'r rhaglen yn dangos sut y gwnaeth yr arlunwyr yma ddarlunio rhyfel fel rhywbeth creulon ac annynol er gwaethaf pwysau o lywodraethau gwledydd fel Prydain, Ffrainc a'r Almaen i arlunwyr bortreadu rhyfel fel rhywbeth nobl, aruchel i hybu propaganda rhyfel. Gan ffilmio ar feysydd y gad yn Ffrainc a Fflandrys, cawn weld sut y gwnaeth profiadau tywyll rhyfel ddylanwadu ar arlunwyr Ewropeaidd fel Otto Dix, Picasso, Stanley Spencer, David Jones a Frank Brangwyn.
