Mick D Kirkov's curator insight, March 21, 2014 1:54 AM

On this demo video aren't the 1000 years promised, anyway it's a great story, to see the History moving visualized, even for a small period of time. On the pic above from 1226 there's a relative small Kievan Rus as opposed to a big Poland, Bohemia, Lithuania, Hungary and Holy Roman Empire, two Bulgarias, small Muslim Spain and a disassembled into more realms "Byzantine Empire" that in the time wasn't even called so but Βασιλεία Ῥωμαίων (or Imperium Romanum, and first after it's surrender under the Turcs 1453, from about 1550 was so called, to appear in the the History books after the city of Byzantium that is today's Istanbul).

The Anzac Day tradition | Australian War Memorial | Doing History | Scoop.it

The Significance of the ANZAC tradition for all Australians...

Maree Whiteley's insight:

Sourced from @SmythCatherine 's insight but such relevant comments about WHY? we commemorate ANZAC...

Why is ANZAC DAY a significant event in Australia? How do we assign significance to an event or a person?

Geoffery Partington suggests the following criteria can be used to determine significance:

1. Importance – to people living at the time

2. Profundity – how deeply people’s lives were affected by it

3. Quantity – how many lives were affected

4. Durability – for how long people’s lives were affected

5. Relevance – the extent to which the event has contributed to an increased understanding of present life 

Another way to think about the significance of something is to use Christine Counsell's model and ask whether the event or person was:

1. Remarkable (event/circumstance/person was remarked upon at the time or after)

2. Remembered (event/circumstance/person was important at some stage in history within collective memory)

3. Resonant (people like to identify with it, reveal something about individuals or society)

4. Resulting in change (consequences for the future -turning point)

5. Revealing- (about some other aspect of the past)

The Australian War Memorial website provides background information about this significant event.

Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration?

Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration? | Doing History | Scoop.it
It’s an open secret in the education community. As we go about integrating technology into our schools, we are increasing the risk and potential for plagiarism
Maree Whiteley's insight:
An Interesting Dilemma...We want students to do “group work,” to collaborate, and to discuss. However, we have very specific realms in which we want this to happen: the group assignment, the in-class discussion, studying for exams, etc. At the same time, many of us want to put up barriers and halt any collaboration at other times (during assessments, for example). What strategies/research skills are you teaching to avoid collaboration/sharing ideas becoming plagiarism?

AC History Units is a website created by the History Teachers' Association of Australia. The site contains 8 units developed to support the implementation of the new history section of the Australian Curriculum. The site also aims to help history teachers to design their own history units and learning sequences. As a history teacher, this is the jackpot! It is full of wonderful lessons from great units, which are already linked to the AusVELS and deemed age appropriate. Half the work of lesson and unit planning is done for you. This is an excellent resource to hold onto!

 

Robert Kidd's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:01 AM

Major Thomas Anderson Kidd served with the 10th Light Horse in Gallipoli and Egypt, was wounded and became seriously ill with Cholera.

 

He wrote diaries which he embellished with maps and diagrams. He was Mentioned in Despatches for gallantry in May & August 1915 and he suggested Hugo Throssell get the Victoria Cross at Hill 60.

 

I edited a transcript of Tom’s re-written diary and began to understand his frustration with the foolishness of some orders and the impossibility of many aspects of the campaigns that he was involved in.

 

In my extensive reading I have found these words have been used to describe him; cool, calm, fair, caring, splendid, brave, fearless, reckless, bullet proof & the men even considered him bomb proof!

 

These men and their families obviously had a life both before & after their war service and I am interested in all facets; particularly the affect war had on them.

 

My book "Uncle Tom's Diary" is a young adult novella about the discovery of one of his diaries ... and secrets!
