Iman Mustapha's insight:

This is an app designed for teachers to get their assessment done quickly using scanning technology. I believe that there are both positives and negatives to this app. The most obvious positive would be how quick it is and how it can automatically organise the results. However, on the other hand, this is obviously done specifically for multiple choice questions, and I think that students in Primary years should have assessments in different forms. For example, short answer type questions gives students the opportunity to express everything they could have learnt in an area, while a multiple choice question could in fact be a lucky guess. I might use this for upper primary school, but I think I would prefer old style correction methods.

42 Experimental And Mind-Bending Maps That You Won't See In Textbooks

42 Experimental And Mind-Bending Maps That You Won't See In Textbooks | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
If you're like me, you'll need to pause a few times to process the raw informational power.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This guy really likes maps. 

It was a really great video to watch, perhaps for the entertainment, but it also is quite informative. I learnt more about maps in 3:44 minutes than I ever have. I also had a look at the website he mentioned: www.worldmapper.org, while I feel nothing for the page design, it is really interesting to see the world map in different ways. For example, the population map. It's crazy to see how small Australia becomes. I mean, we all know that Australia's population is small compared to the land size... but when you can see it compared to the rest of the world, it makes a lasting impression. Great way to explain maps to students.

My Place Website

Iman Mustapha's insight:

This interactive website explores Australian history through the use of different characters in different important periods of time. This is incredibly engaging as students can explore for themselves the different tales. There are also games and activities that students can do on this website. I think that this is a great learning resource in a primary school classroom. Many of the my place videos would act as a perfect introduction to a certain time in history. For example, if teaching about indigenous history, or the first settlement, there are videos that students can watch as an entire grade to begin the study of a unit. The interactive timeline that I have 'scooped' could be a good way for kids to explore and choose a time in history that they would like to research further.

Ken Robinson: How schools kill creativity | Video on TED.com

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

in this TED Talk by Sir Ken Robinson, he expresses his belief that schools are limiting rather than nurturing the opportunity for students to think creatively. He challenges the way that we are teaching our students. He believes that children have an extraordinary capacity to think innovatively and creatively. He believes that this ability should given the same attention as literacy and numeracy. I share his opinion as I know that the future is too bright to comprehend and students need to have the ability to think in creative ways in order to cope in the new world. This information is fantastic to keep in mind when learning to teach and while teaching. Never limit a childs creativity, help it to grow.

The world is full of noise and those that are the loudest are the ones we tend to follow but what about the quiet ones? Author Susan Cain shines a spotlight ...
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This short video clip expresses the differences between introverts and extroverts and how they are valued in different ways. They use the example of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniac and the creation of apple computers. They make a point that intro/extraverts amke great partners as they make up for the others low points. This is excellent to keep in mind when becoming an educator. It is important for teachers to remember that every student is different and learns best in different ways. This could be very helpful information to have when planning.

Education | IMAX Melbourne

Education | IMAX Melbourne | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Iman Mustapha's insight:

The IMAX can be an amazing experience for students and the range of educational films that are available are great. I remember going to the IMAX a few times during primary school to see a movie about bugs, and about the human body. Even after years, I still remember the experience. I think that the IMAX is a great place to take students, especially if one of the videos relates to a topic they are studying in class. It is a different way to experience learning, the kids would find it extremely enjoyable and they would want to speak about it. It is perfect to introduce a topic perhaps, so that it leads to deeper discussion in the class.

Neil Hilborn & Renee Schminkey - "One Color" (NPS 2013)

Performing for Minneapolis's SlamMN! at the 2013 National Poetry Slam.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This slam poem speaks about rape and how students should be better prepared for a situation were it to happen to them. It explains how schools teach us how to prepare for unexpected situations, and where to go when those situations arise. But it does not teach about how it feels, and it does not teach that something like rape can come from anywhere and not just a cliche version of what rape is. I actually think that this would be better if viewed by teachers. It is very moving, and hence could make educators more aware of what they need to teach their students. Rape is unfortunately a very real problem and it should be explained in schools rather than ignored as unlikely.

7 Cowardly Words From A Totally Sexist Stranger Sparked This Courageous Response

7 Cowardly Words From A Totally Sexist Stranger Sparked This Courageous Response | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
What he overheard was horrible. What he turned it into? Stunning.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This video shows a mans heartfelt response to the words "You are too ugly to be raped". This video shows the seriousness of rape and that it is not to be joked about. If this were to be shown in an educational setting, it would rise many issues to be discussed amongst students. Not only the seriousness of the crime, but also of sensitivity to it. This could help to educate people on the issues that rape can create for individuals, families and communities.

The Dude Is Pissed. And Unfortunately, We Can All Recognize The Reason Why. | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Like. Totally. Whatever. If you know someone who uses these words, show them this video.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This slam poet, Taylor Mali, expresses the importance of speaking with conviction in a humouress way. He points out the youth of today and how it is now considered 'uncool' to know what you are talking about. I think this carries an important message that students should be aware of. Kids today don't express themselves as much as they should. We are aiming to teach children to think critically and to make informed decisions. But what young people may lack is the passion to do so. This video can act as a reminder to those young people, that while they may believe something, it is not enough to just think it. They need to say it.

Watch These 4 Girls Destroy The Female Stereotype Like The Monsters They Are | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Tired of the "cute" costumes and female stereotypes, these four girls completely kill that idea.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

These four young women speak about stereotypes that women face especially about dress. The say that women should be free to wear whatever they choose, without being judged. It is a wonderful message that they are giving as it is a matter of concern today. This would be a good video to show students, especially adolescent females. The message that they can recieve from this video is one that every girl should know. There are countless pressures today placed on young women, and they should be reminded to stay true to who they are.

Detention Centre

Detention Centre | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Detention Centre is an interactive documentary that seeks to reveal what life is like inside an immigration detention centre.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This is an interactive website which presents many videos and images about what life is like in a detention centre. There are many different situations that are discussed and issues that have the potential to be further researched. If the topic of immigration and refugees were to arise in a classroom, this would be a good resource to explore to educate them about detention centres. It is also easily accessible which can be used by students individually so that they can access what they find most interest in.

France bans the burqa

France bans the burqa | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
France, home to Europe's biggest Muslim population, has officially banned women from wearing full-face veils in public places.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This is an article exploring the ban on the Burqa in France. It goes on to say that the populations of Muslims who wear the burqa in France is a minority of approximately 2000 people. However, is this really solving a problem, or is it creating a hidden underclass? This is something that students should be informed about. It is important for young people to be accurately informed about things happening around the world in order to form their own opinions and conclusions. Showing students any contraversial issues allows them the opportunity to think in a critical way and hence further develop there skill. Any articles are good for either class discussions, or even research purposes.

SlutWalk Melbourne

SlutWalk Melbourne | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Because it's still never okay to blame the victim.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

The Melbourne 'Slutwalk' is an annual walk that people attend to stand against people blaming a victim of rape. I was unaware of this, perhaps due to the contraversial name. However, after learning about it, I have to say that I agree with what it stands for. I think it is disgusting of people to blame a victim for rape. A person never 'asks for it'. While I believe people should have the freedom to wear what they wish, it is still important to educate young people to be cautious of the dangers obviously still lurk. There are precautions that can be taken, and it is vital for this information to be passed on to young people. This walk may not be used to teach students the precautions that they must take so that they never find themselves in this situation, but it does represent what could happen if someone does become a victim of rape.

Iman Mustapha's insight:

This is a video of a reading of the renouned speech 'Ain't I a Woman?' by Sojourner Truth in 1851. It is a powerful speech which emphasises inequality in womens rights and negro rights. This video is an excellent way to highlight these issues in an education environment. Women's rights and Negro rights are a huge part of our history as a global race, and it is important for students to be aware in order for them to make informed reflections. This video would be great to get students view for them to get a feel for how women felt during that time. It also gives a bigger picture, it allows us all to see how far we've gone from that point in time.

This Kid's Logic Will Make You ​​Delete 'Candy Crush' From Your Phone And Hand Over Your Socks | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Making the world (and Internet) suck a little less, one step at a time.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This short video is spoken by a young "kid president" about how the internet is used today. He expresses that the internet can be used for great as well as evil and he proposes "SOCKTOBER". The aim of Socktober is to get people to donate to the homeless and to raise money to build a home for homeless women. I thought this was really great to see. If only for the fact that it was a child who said it. If something like this were to be shown to children in a classroom, it could pass along the message that they can achieve anything no matter how small they are. This could also be an example for a class project. We could watch this to get an example of how we can help in our community too.

Racism. No Way.: Homepage | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
This website aims to tackle racism in schools in Australia, through providing teachers, school students, parents and governors with games, research and lesson ideas that explore the causes and effects of racism for practical use in the classroom.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This website is aimed at the issue of racism in schools in Australia. It is extremely informative and includes many teaching resources such as worksheets to share with the students. Racism and prejudice are issues that students need to be aware of, and the values of tolerance and respect need to be practiced. I think every student should have an anti-racism learning experience.

Iman Mustapha's insight:

This animation on a speech given by Sir Ken Robinson addresses the change in education paradigms. He outlines the differences between how education used to be and how it has changed. He expresses that the education needs to change allong with the world. I agree with this view whole heartedly. While I believe my education was a good one, it does not assure me that I will get a job in the future. There are multiple alternative paths and I know that schools need to change the way they teach students in order to support the future that they will be let into.

Iman Mustapha's insight:

This video addresses the issue of staying safe online. It helps children to understand what constitutes personal information and enables children to understand that they need to be just as protective of their personal information online, as they are in the real world. Unfortunately, children are sometimes unaware of the dangers of posting things online and not using privacy settings. This video would be fantastic to show students to make them aware of the dangers of using the internet and to inform them of how they can use the internet safely.

Inside: Life in Children’s Homes and Institutions: Melbourne Museum

Inside: Life in Children’s Homes and Institutions: Melbourne Museum | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This exhibition at the Melbourne Museum explores the history of the 500,000 children who were placed in institutionalised care in the 20th century. There are many voices and objects that identify with the forgotten Australians and migrants who were placed in this care and hidden 'inside'. It is a very forgotten topic, and it would be extremely worthwhile to go and experience this exhibition, if only to learn more about Australian history. This could also be a perfect opportunity for a school excursion. If students are learning about Australian history, this is an excellent part of history to teach as it is usually looked over.

This slam poet speaks about the judgements that young black men still have to face in America. He speaks of how the young men of his race are subjected to stereotypes of being bad that they are almost forced to become those stereotypes. It's terribly sad to think of. This video can be shown in schools to enforce the values of tolerance and self respect. To be strong and try and over come the stereotypes that are thrown at you from birth.

If you've ever heard of the saying, "faith has been restored in humanity", this is the perfect example. These young men made 30 pizza's and gave them out to homeless people around the city. I couldn't help but smile as I watched this video. This video carries an amazing message, the message that people who can afford to, should share with people who have nothing. This video would be wonderful to show to students of all ages to teach values. The values of sharing and not being greedy. Also, just to show students that they should help others if they can.

Don't Ask Hillary Clinton About Abortion If You Can't Handle Her Answer | Education, History and Society | Scoop.it
Congressman trying to catch Hill off guard is immediately and politely reminded of her badassery.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

Hillary Clinton shares her opinion on abortion in the area of women and family health. She proposes that due to the many health risks that can occur as a result of a ban on abortion, she agrees that it should be an option for women when planning parenthood. This is a great video to express one side of the contraversial issue of contraception. If this were to be used in an educational setting, it would be great to have in many learning areas. Literacy is one example, it could act as a resource to inspire persuasive writing, or also to encourage public speaking and debating.

Join the conversation about immigration, take an interactive asylum seeker's journey, read about the partipants, and watch the trailer for the world-first TV event.
Iman Mustapha's insight:

The series 'Go Back to Where You Came From', is a journey taken by six Australians with different opinions on refugees and asylum seekers. The six people were taken on a trip to see what situations are like for refugees before they leave their country, when they are in a detention centre and when they have settled in Australia. It is a very eye opening series as it shows things that no one really talks about. I found this really engaging to watch and would recommend it to anyone interested to know more about refugees. If this were to be used in a classroom setting, it would be great to make students aware of just why these issues are happening. This could be used as stimulus for an extensive research project on refugees, geography or even Australian law.

The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes

She addressed a UN Meeting on issue of environment
Iman Mustapha's insight:

This young girl addressed a UN Meeting on the issue of environment. She spoke out to these adults and emphasised on the fact that she, as a child, could see that what they, as adults were doing wrong. It is a moving thing, to see a young person so informed about something as big as the environment. And sometimes, it makes a bigger impact when a young person addresses an adult issue. This video can be used in a teaching situation when learning about the environment and how to care for it. Student's can see from this video that it is an issue that matters to them, as it is their environment for the future that needs to be looked after. It is also more effective as it is another child addressing the issue.

Iman Mustapha's insight:

This cartoon by Malcolm Evans touches on the ideologies of a woman's oppression of today. Both women are different as they have been brought up in different places and with different morals. Yet both believe that the other is oppressed. Perhaps neither is oppressed as they are choosing to do what is dictated by their views, opinions and beliefs. I think this image is a great way to explain values such as tolerance and respect in an educational environment. This image could be used to lead many class discussions as well which will allow students to form their own opinions on a contraversial issue.

Iman Mustapha's insight:

This online timeline of women's history in America is one of high quality. This timeline places focus on influencial women in America's history. I think that when teaching history, a timeline really puts things in to perspective. One through ICT is highly beneficial as well as it allows a person to further research their enquiry. This would be ideal in a educational environment when teaching history. It is good because it is not extremely heavy with content. Instead, it is light, and allows people to further research something  if they wish to.
