Lydia Mackinlay Campbell's insight:

“On April 17, 1975, Phnom Penh fell under the control of the Khmer Rouge, the communist guerilla group led by Pol Pot. They forced all city residents into the countryside and to labor camps. During the three years, eight months, and 20 days of Pol Pot’s rule, Cambodia faced its darkest days, an estimated 2 million Cambodians or 30% of the country’s population died by starvation, torture or execution. Almost every Cambodian family has lost at least one relative during this most gruesome holocaust.” This information if taught in a history class along with world war two can educate students that world war 2 was not an isolated event, although very emotionally intense, the importance of teaching world history perhaps in a secondary class rather then primary classes helps further educate the next generation to understand and acknowledge these events, so that they are not forgotten. By teaching the past it will hopefully improve the future as well as keeping these events as large historical marks in time and countries that cannot be forgotten as they have been such a monumental part of history.

Call of Duty®

Call of Duty® | History and Society | Scoop.it
Black ops 2
Lydia Mackinlay Campbell's insight:

Call of duty, a game about fighting in wars, in the series of games as there have been quite a few different ones, the focus has been on world war 1, world war 2 and the cold war and the newest version of the game are modern warfare where the game takes place in near future settings. The aim in each game is to fight war by killing the enemy. Many debates are being had weather this game is appropriate for children as it portrays the brutality of war. Along with this if the game is ethically and morally correct. Making a game out of events that have expired and events that should be learnt from and also had monumental effects on hundreds of millions of people, yet it is being brought into homes and being ‘played’ out by children.

40 Hour Famine - 16 -18 August 2013

40 Hour Famine - 16 -18 August 2013 | History and Society | Scoop.it
The 40 Hour Famine is a chance to do something real. By giving up food or something else that really matters to you for 40 hours, you can raise funds for kids living in poverty overseas.
Lydia Mackinlay Campbell's insight:

Forty hour famine- a great initiative aimed at raising money for children living in poverty. Although perhaps not appropriate for primary children to famine, there are other ways in which they could be apart of this, by giving up tv, video games or something they like. The beauty in doing this within a primary setting is that children will be educated on a humanities level that there are children like just like them, but much worse off then them. By giving up something they like for 40 hours it will just aid in the understanding of what it would be like to live without something they believe they couldn’t

Things are different now then they use to be, parents saying don’t talk to strangers use to mean children being face to face with someone they didn’t know, if someone was being bullied it would mean that there was verbal or physical abuse that was happening face to face but the person being bullied could leave the situation and find a safe place at home.

This article is aimed at informing people, especially young people at the dangers of cyber space and how to be safe when using the Internet. This is an excellent resource when teaching young children, as it is very important they be properly educated about Internet safety and what dangers can be out there. Children are not aware of any risk involved in logging onto ‘the net’ they simply see it as a place to play games and look for pictures, but they need to know about particular websites and ways to protect themselves.

Julia Gillard opens up on sexism  - Telegraph | History and Society | Scoop.it
Julia Gillard, Australia's ousted prime minister, has opened up for the first time on the sexism that plagued her leadership, saying you "wouldn't be human if you had no reaction to it."
Lydia Mackinlay Campbell's insight:

This article talks candidly about the sexism Julia Gillard felt she faced when prime minster. Gillard speaks of her feelings and innermost beliefs that the comments and points made to her about her gender would have been ‘inhuman not to react to’. This piece would be an excellent learning resource for teachers as it shows the upper most power a woman has had in Australia and yet still the battle she had to face for equality being a women. It could be used as a discussion topic in upper primary classrooms as to what ‘sexism’ is and how it still remains in society today in a number of ways. This could be an excellent marker to teaching equality and acceptance of all people’s genre, age, race, ethnicity, and religion.
