This video provides an amazing look at the Kilauea volcano located in Hawaii. You will "witness molten rock slowly burning down a dense wet rainforest" and "peer into a six-hundred-foot-wide lava lake at Kilauea's summit crater." The power of a volcano comes alive in this video and students may begin to ask questions based on the impact of the images.

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students | History teaching and learning | Scoop.it

"There are many reasons a student can lose focus in school. It can be bad grades that will discourage them to be inactive and to rebel. It can be the environment that can be stifling and suffocating for the students. It can be the fact that many of them don’t find it easy to the meaning in their struggles in school."

Genocide Watch

Elizabeth Bowden's insight:

I taught the unit of Genocide (specifically Rwanda and the Holocaust) through the lens of the 8 stages of Genocide.  Year 10 Elective History students researched both of the Genocides and provided evidence for each of the 8 Stages. They put together a research project, presented their findings in different ways then wrote a paper on one of the aspects and its importance to the path towards genocide. It worked really well.

Using LEGO to Teach Hands-On Math

Using LEGO to Teach Hands-On Math | History teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter
Elizabeth Bowden's insight:

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through.

LEGOs. Math. Put the two together and you may have a winning combination. And to make it even easier check out this infographic that provides a range of ideas on how to use LEGOs in math. Make sure to scroll past the infographic. More detailed explanations are provides as well as a template to a LEGO stud dice (with additional ways to teach math with LEGOs).

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 12, 2014 7:15 PM

As more schools increase the number of computers available to students the possibility of blended learning is enhanced. This post will provide many great resources. They have divided blended learning into five areas:

* What is Blended Learning?

* Getting Started with Blended Learning

* Tips. Tools and Strategies

* Blended Learning in Practice

* Additional Resources on the Web

If you think you need to learn more about blended learning for the K-12 environment you may want to check out a course that will probably be offered through Coursera in 2015. Information about it available here. I took this course last spring and found it provided a solid base to help create a blended course. You can also check out a unit I designed on the Phases of the Moon.
