Stop Disasters

Stop Disasters | GEP Primary resources for learning and teaching | Scoop.it

Education is key for reducing children’s risks to disasters. Children are one of the most vulnerable groups when disasters occur. By teaching them about the risks posed by natural hazards, children will have a better chance to save their lives during disasters.

Toy Stories | gabriele galimberti

Toy Stories | gabriele galimberti | GEP Primary resources for learning and teaching | Scoop.it

Everyone remembers their childhood toys. The fact that I can recall how most of mine tasted better than I can remember the names of my primary school teachers says everything you need to know about the universe kids inhabit. Indeed, when Galimberti hit upon the idea of photographing children from around the world with their toys, he was not expecting to uncover much we did not already know: kids love dolls and dinosaurs and trucks and cuddly monkeys, and will construct worlds around them before eventually, inevitably, disregarding them for ever. “At their age, they are pretty all much the same,” is his conclusion after 18 months working on the project. “They just want to play.”

Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story

Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories.
Global Education Project, Victoria's insight:

When Chimamanda was a child she read stories about white, blue eyed children and later questionned the danger of the single story., noy that it was the wrong stereotype for may others but that it was an incompletes story. Links to the general capability of intercultural understanding.

Amina: Through My Eyes

Amina: Through My Eyes | GEP Primary resources for learning and teaching | Scoop.it

The series "Through My Eyes invites young readers to enter the fragile worlds of children living in contemporary war zones. Every day in an increasing number of countries, children are desperately trying to survive as their families and their whole way of life is destroyed by war. This new series is a tribute to such children and the themes of courage, determination, triumph and perseverance will inspire, challenge and engage young readers, creating greater cross cultural understanding and informed empathy.

Several stories set in the World Wars have been written for younger readers but very little has been published about more contemporary conflicts and those within Asian settings. War affects the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the boy or girl and these stories will appeal to all readers." (www.throughmyeyesbooks.com.au)

 

These guides support use of each Through My Eyes book in Years 5-8 classrooms. The comprehensive guides, linked to the Australian curriculum, feature rich links to web pages and digital content, so are best viewed online, but may be printed.

Global Education Project, Victoria's curator insight, December 2, 2013 7:42 PM

This series is inspiring and powerful.

 

The unique cultural setting and multiplicity of contemporary global themes presented in these stories have strong relevance for the development of the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the following General Capabilities, particularly through the use of Inquiry Learning:
Intercultural understanding
Personal and social capability
Ethical understanding
Critical and creative thinking
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capability


Some of the stories are set in the Asian region supporting the Cross-curriculum priority of Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and the development of ‘Asia literacy’. The opportunity to explore country and place, people, identity and culture ensures the relevance of this text for inclusion in the Geography and History learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.

 

The website provides a range of support material for middle years teachers.

Sam Burden's curator insight, March 16, 2014 9:28 PM

Moja Island is a terrific teaching resource, readily available for teachers to modify and apply within the classroom targeting the Year 3-4 Design and Technology Key Learning Area. This teaching and learning resource is a relevant active activity, constructed to teach students about renewable energy sources, which would stem over a 2-3 teaching episode, reflecting the standards outlined in the Australian National Curriculum (ACARA), Design and Technologies.

 

Knowledge and understanding: investigate and evaluate the range of technologies, materials, systems, tools and equipment that support local community needs with consideration of sustainability

 

Processors and production skills: produce designed, sustainable solutions for design projects by purposefully planning, selecting, safely using and evaluating technologies, materials including natural, recycled and everyday household items, and tools and equipment.

Reading Australia - a new resource from Copyright Agency in partnership with AATE and PETA.

Reading Australia - a new resource from Copyright Agency in partnership with AATE and PETA. | GEP Primary resources for learning and teaching | Scoop.it

Copyright Agency has developed Reading Australia to make significant Australian literary works more readily available for teaching in schools and universities. These works are being supplemented with online teacher resources and essays by popular authors about the enduring relevance of the works. 

 

The first 200 titles (PDF, 215KB) were selected by the Australian Society of Authors’ (ASA) Council. The ASA’s Council were asked to select works they thought students and others should encounter, to give a view of Australia’s rich cultural identity: works that would tell Australia’s history and also how we are currently developing as a nation. The ASA Council are adamant that this list should be merely the beginning, and it should be built upon with other works that have already been published, as well as the great new works that continue to be published in Australia.

 

For the launch of Reading Australia, ten titles were selected from the first 200 list for study by Secondary students, and ten for Primary students. The teacher resources for these titles include classroom activities, assessments and links to the new Australian Curriculum. In addition, the Secondary resources include a new introduction to the text from high profile writers.

Peace building | Global Education

Peace building | Global Education | GEP Primary resources for learning and teaching | Scoop.it

Peace is often defined in the negative, as freedom from war. Peace, development and democracy are mutually reinforcing. Without democracy, fair distribution of economic progress and wealth is unlikely. Without sustainable development the disparities become marked and can be a cause for unrest, and without peace, developmental gains are quickly destroyed.
