Free Technology for Teachers: Interactive History Animation - Daily Life in the Iron Age

Free Technology for Teachers: Interactive History Animation - Daily Life in the Iron Age | Australian curriculum | Scoop.it

"Life in the Iron Age is a neat little series of animation from BBC History. Through the series of interactive animations students learn about how fires were started, bread was baked, and wool was spun during the Iron Age. In each animation students gather the materials needed to complete each activity. Each time a student picks up a new material they are shown a short passage of text about the material and how it was used in creating a fire, making bread, or spinning wool. At the end of each animation students have the option to take a short quiz about the activity they just studied."

Much like the Magellan song - another good animation

Taryn Coxall's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:05 PM

This is a fun (somewhat strange) but more engaging resource to help teach younger years australian history. It is clear that todays generations are much more inclined ot watch a video or listen to  a song than ready a book, and from experience they are not worried about quality or subject.. they will iterally watch anything. I belive this video will be a great introductary resource for beggining to teach history to primary students and something that they will remember rather than go in one ear andout the other.

CD - The reasons for and effects of international migration in Australia.

 

Immigration is one of the strongest links that seems to bind these Facebook neighbours,as thousands of people pour over borders or over seas, seeking jobs or fleeing violence, and making new connections and maintaining old friendships along the way. Economic links, through trade or investment, also seem to be strong predictors of country connectedness.

14 Bloom's Taxonomy Posters For Teachers

14 Bloom's Taxonomy Posters For Teachers | Australian curriculum | Scoop.it

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a useful tool for assessment design, but using it only for that function is like using a race car to go to the grocery–a huge waste of potential.

In an upcoming post we’re going to look at better use of Bloom’s taxonomy in the classroom, but during research for that post it became interesting how many variations there are of the original work. While a handful of the charts below only show aesthetic changes compared to others, most are concept maps of sorts–with graphic design that signifies extended function (power verbs), detail (clear explanations), or features of some sort (Bloom’s Taxonomy tasks by level).
