Games in the Classroom

Games in the Classroom | Humanities | Scoop.it
Practical Money Skills puts the fun in financial literacy with online educational games for students and adults.
Chris Leboeuf's insight:

This is just of the one sites that provide a couple of games to teach economics but there are many different variations depending on your class. Dealing with money and the use of interactive games such as these helps the students grasp difficult concepts like budgeting, monetary value and imports & exports.

Chris Leboeuf's insight:

Cartoons are  great way to engage children and this one is a great way to open the issue of racism. It would allow the students to emotionally relate to the 'plain-bellied sneetches'. They can see that to be teased or ignored because their different is actually wrong.

Chris Leboeuf's insight:

This is an essential resource for teachers as it gives them an indication of what level their students should be at and will need to be by the end of the year. It is great because it provides a breakdown of each discpiline and how much time and effort should be dedicated to that for the year.

Horrible Histories

Horrible Histories | Humanities | Scoop.it
Chris Leboeuf's insight:

Horrible Histories is a great resource for the History strand of humanities. It provides fun skits about different time periods and is littered with fact about the time. This type of resource would lead to some great classroom discussions and can help the students relate to different time periods.

Chris Leboeuf's insight:

This is the national curriculum of victoria. Where as ACARA deals with the assesment side of schooling, AusVels is more about the curriculum content. This gives an insight into what units will be taught and where students should be at after they have completed it.

Babakiueria

A political mockumentary reversing the situation in Australia, where blacks landed in a white culture and took over.
Chris Leboeuf's insight:

This was another resource shown to us in our lectures. I found this really confronting. It's a reversal of roles and they portray white people as less than human and we have a sort of superioty complex over them. This would be an interesting resource to show the upper primary school students to see how they portray aboriginals now and how people 20 years ago viewed the aboriginals.
