Teaching Kids about Global Poverty

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty | PSHS Humanities | Scoop.it

"Living on One Dollar is a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts. I found it so compelling I've dedicated this whole film fest to it. Each episode not only succinctly frames an issue faced by people in the developing world and makes it personal, but also offers resource links to learn more -- and even better -- to do something about it."

Colo. Middle Schools Connect with PenPals in Pakistan | AspenTimes.com | PSHS Humanities | Scoop.it

by Michael McLaughlin

summary by MiddleWeb SmartBrief

 

"Students in Kristen Zodrow's class at Basalt Middle School in Colorado are participating in a cultural exchange with students in Pakistan through a partnership with the Global Kids Connect program. The students write letters and posters for their Pakistani pen pals, and they create videos to express their views about honor, ownership and tolerance. "The object is to improve relations and help understand we may have a lot of differences, but we also have a lot in common," said Jodi Fischer, executive director of Global Kids Connect."

Follow the Things

Follow the Things | PSHS Humanities | Scoop.it
Who makes the things that we buy? Few of us know. They seem untouched by human hands. Occasionally there’s a news story, a documentary film, or an artwork showing the hidden ingredients in our coffee, t-shirts, or iPads. They often ‘expose’ unpleasant working conditions to encourage more ‘ethical’ consumer or corporate behaviour. followthethings.com is this work’s ‘online store’. Here, you can find out who follows what and why; the techniques used to research and ‘grab’ its audiences; the discussions and impacts that it provokes; and how to follow things yourself.
