Today I was fortunate enough to present video conference to large bunch of Year 12 Physics students from across Sydney. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, getting back into my Physics, the preparation, collaboration with colleagues and finally the delivery and discourse that ensued.
This was part of the 'HSC Masterclass: One More Mark' initiative being run to help lift our students from high Band 5 into Band 6 in the NSW Board of Studies Higher School Certificate examinations.
Here is the presentation. Please copy, re-edit, comment and critique to your heart's content.
Many thanks to my colleagues at work for organising and the various tips offered by fellow Physics teachers. Also a big thanks to Helen Fergusson and Derek Muller for their contributions. Recommended resources include:

BEST OF LUCK TO ALL YEAR PHYSICS TEACHERS AND STUDENTS!
