Forskning.se productionsThe editorial staff at forskning.se also produce educational material for public outreach:
The aim with this production is to enhance public awareness of the planet earth; to show its limits, its treats and its possibilities. The Planet is presented with educational stories, illustrative animations, and interactive videos. The campaign consists of a movie, a four episode TV serie, a website with on-line games, all together a result of a unique collaboration between a film production company, the Swedish Public Service Television and forskning.se.
The Planet is built using Infact, a software designed by Forskning.se. Infact is a tool for building interactive zooming mind map presentations. Even though Infact originally is designed for the presentation of research, it works just as well for other purposes, to create learning objects in education, visualize complex relationships, present organizations or projects. Infact is open source and available for download, read more here.
