Use engaging videos on TED-Ed to create customized lessons. You can use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on any video from YouTube.
Taryn Coxall's insight:
By far my favourite resource i have found so far. "TED-ED" is a free website speicifcally designed for teachers used for creating lessons. The website allows and shows you how to take an video off the web (youtube etc) and make it into a student friendly lesson.
can not wait to implement this into my teaching! amazing!
"the Burka Avenger" is a new cartoon aired in pakistan aiming to empower pakistani women who wear burkas.
I think this clip is a great resourse for not only empowering pakistani women and girls but to use within the Australian classroom in order to not only expose students to different cultures entertainment but more specifically look at rasism, stereotyoes and different cultures traditons in a fun and enagaging way
"[This map's] an unabashedly generalized interactive population density map inspired/stolen from a map by William Bunge entitled Islands of Mankind that I came across on John Krygier‘s blog. I thought Bunge’s map was a novel way to look at population density, and I’ve tried to stay close to the spirit of the original."
This interactive map is a great resourse for the priamry classroom, it is more interactive than just giving children the facts on population density but rather lets them explore population denisty of countries all over the worls and throughout hundreds of years.

This short new clip outlines the drasic effects bullying can haveon children as young as 10 years old. although shocking i feel this could be used as a toll to enforce that bullying inside and outside of school cn can have drastic and life long effects,
The Australian sun is fierce. On a lightly overcast day 80% of the searing UV light can still get through – more than enough to cause skin damage and, potentially, melanoma. We are way more sunsmart than we used to be, and deep tans are fairly rare. But a freckle-free face is no guarantee that all is well, as Carrie Bickmore discovered when she got a scan from the UV Photobus touring the country. The bus is a clever marketing move by sunscreen manufacturer Sunsense, providing a free, um, portrait to anyone who wants one (if you can get seen – only 2 of the 21 days are reserved for Sydney and Melbourne’s 8.7 million inhabitants!) 80% of damage is done before the age of 18, and the UV scan has changed Carrie’s attitude to protecting her 5-yo son. “I think he's annoyed with me, but now every day we have to put sunscreen on”.
This article explains a new service that travels around the country foccusingon awaremess of UV and skin damage fromt he sun via a Photo Bus. The education of sun safety ins chools is vital, especailly in early years so students can maintain a safe approach to being sun smart throughout their lives. I think this bus would be a great resourse to visit schools and urther educate kids on the damaging effects of the sun, by showing images of the deeper damage the sun has on your skin.
Bullying. No Way! Australia's safe and supportive school communities getting to the heart of the matter!
Taryn Coxall's insight:
"Bullying. No Way!" is a nationally recognised website aimed at elliminating bullying in schools. The website provides information and activities for both students and teachers all aimed at educating students on the effects of the various forms of bullying.
Thw webite offers information and actvities for various age level groups through interative games, videos and allows students to make an "Avitar" and share their thoughts and problems online about their persoanl bullying experiences.
I love this website as a resource for the classroom as it takes a different approach to teaching students about bullying, rather than just telling them"Dont do it" it offers information on the effects that can come from being a bully and being bullied and provides a safe place for students who are having difficulties and have no where else to go.
"The Little Refugee" is an inspiring and engaging story, suitable forall orimary years. The book foccuses on an inspirational story about a young boys journey as a refugee from vietnam and his new life in suburban Australia. I think this text would be very useful in the primary classroom as it provides a simplified look into refugee life in Australia. This is important in the classroom especially in Melbourne as there is ahigh percenatage of refugee students within Melbourne schools. It is importnant for students to learn and understand new cultures but also be aware of issues that other countries around the world are faced with.
great resource! will defiently incorperate into the classroom.
This specific website is a simple, yet effective resourse on current ADIS, TB and Malaria prevalence in Africa. the visual aspects of this makes getting this importnat information across to students more interactive and engaging, by being able to compare statistics to other coutries and also see a combination of maps and graphs in order to get the information across

Taryn Coxall's insight:
