Kathleen Cercone's curator insight, September 3, 2014 10:39 AM

Qualification completion rates are an important measure of the effectiveness of the VET system. In this webinar, Daniel Doncaster and Adrian Seabrook from the Queensland Department of Education, Training and Employment will discuss the development of a Longitudinal VET Activity Dataset that allows for the tracking of individual students from commencement through to qualification completion. The database stores all publicly funded VET data collected in Queensland since 1996, enabling the Department to accurately calculate actual qualification completion rates. The presentation will highlight the potential of the longitudinal dataset in identifying factors that contribute to non-completion and cover some initial findings on completion rates.

Further information about this free webinar is available on the NCVER portal.

YouTube has progressed beyond cat videos. Twitter is more than just sharing what you’re eating for dinner. All of the major social networks are keystones of our online life and make up a big portion of who we are. So it’s no surprise that there are now guidelines on how to cite social media using the MLA and APA standards. In fact, I’m surprised it’s taken this long to see this topic hit the mainstream.

Break Dancing, Phnom Penh-Style

"A former gang member from Long Beach, California, teaches break dancing to at-risk youths in Cambodia."

Norka McAlister's curator insight, April 18, 2015 3:26 PM

In this video we can appreciate how the skill of breaking dancing can be globalized from U.S. to Cambodia.  KK is a Cambodian refugee who use to live in California. Due to his participation in gangs, he was deported to Cambodia, a country he had never been in before. Since he has been exposed to violence, breaking dancing changed him for the better. Fortunately, for young kids in Cambodia, KK brings American culture and shares it with young kids so they can learn from it. Indeed, KK takes advantage of pop music and introduces it to Cambodian children in order to keep them away from drugs and teach them how to prevent HIV disease. Language is another advantage of the fusion of American culture, which make KK valuable to the local and regional young communities.

Bob Beaven's curator insight, April 26, 2015 3:38 PM

The 21st Century for countries is far different than many others that have gone by.  Globalization is changing how people think about countries and the culture of the sovereign states.  This video shows how an American Gang Banger who is of Cambodian Descent is transforming the life of Cambodian children for the better through Break Dancing and Hip Hop.  The man was exiled from the United States, but brought its culture with him.  However, he became a gang banger in the United States because he was part of an immigrant group the US helped to create by destabilizing the region during the Vietnam War.  This shows just how interconnected the world is becoming.  When he brought Hip Hop and culture from the US with him, the kids wanted to learn break dancing, so now he runs a school and encourages the students to do well and stay clear of drugs.  The paths that led to the creation and success of the school owe themselves to geographical factors.

Jared Medeiros's curator insight, April 28, 2015 5:27 PM

It apperas that one countrys trash is anothers treasure, and possiblty so much more.  You can see first hand in this video how a culture from one part of the world can have great impact on another so different and so far away.  Being deported could be the best thing that happened to this teacher.  It also could be the best thing that happened to a lot of these childrens lives as well.

When I was teaching and gave the class some time to discuss something it was often hit and miss about how long I gave them. I then used the free iPresentee keynote timer in a slide and that was an improvement, but if you have an Internet connection and a web browser this great range of timers could be very useful in a classroom setting. :-)
