RSA animations, short films and event videos

The RSA Animates-series that is offered by the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) provides animated speeches to share ‘world-changing ideas’ as they claim on their webpage. What they offer is freely accessible animated videos of speeches such as “Drive: The Surprising Truth of What Motivates us” by Dan Pink, “Re-Imagining Work” by Dave Coplin, or “Crisis of Capitalism” by David Harvey. The speeches constitute a great knowledge resource and the animations great teaching resources for the classroom. I use some of them in my classes and my students like the style of the animated videos but more importantly, they tell me that this sort of video is of great help to better understand the topics that we address in the lectures. In addition to the Animates-series, it is also worth having a look into the RSA Shorts (e.g. Kate Raworth on Growth), Event Videos (e.g. Frank Trentmann on Consumerism) and RSA Insights (e.g. Matthew Parsfield on the Value of Connected Communities).
