She Worked In A Factory In Bangladesh To Make This Story. Her Supervisor Was 9 Years Old. | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
Things that matter. Pass 'em on.
JMAC's insight:

An interesting short doccumenty of the workers in a garment factory in Bangladesh. 

Its shocking to hear that during the week that the reporter spent working in a clothing factory that her boss was a 9 year old, many of our students are 9 years old - how would they react to the fact that children their age are working in factories while they are in school?

Use this video to open up awareness of where your clothing comes from and how much the $5 is cost to buy in a store actually goes back to the factory worker.

JMAC's insight:

A shoty film, about identity, individuality and appearance. 
Students may all wear the same school uniform, learn the same topics attend the same classes but all students are different- in appearence and personality.

In this this clip we see students wearing masks that they change depending on the social situaiton they are in. A students cracks her masks and discovers her own face, with pride she embraces her individuality. Whole other masked students look on shamefully at her individualty.

Using this video in the classroom with students in the senior years of primary school, during a lesson focused on personal self and pride.

JMAC's insight:

A short clip to use for teacher development.

Some times we need to be reminded that non of our students are the same, they all have personal attributes individual to them selves; we will never have the same student twice. With this in mind we need to ensure that we are teacher all students in the classroom, the intorvert and the extravert adapting classwork to meet thir abilities.

This video give us a great example with the Apple company and it creation was a partnership of introvert and extravert; we can use this example in our classroom grouping mixed abilities together to for well balanced groups which will present quaility work.

Something Every Teacher Should Watch. And Student. And Person.

Something Every Teacher Should Watch. And Student. And Person. | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
Short. Mesmerizing.
JMAC's insight:

The vido presesnted here narrated by Alan Watts, is a great example of use of imagery and powerful words to get the mind working and thinking. 

Students are encournage in literacy classes to write about what they want to be in the furture and where they would like to live, for many students these ideas can be un-developed, close minded or just plain boring (in my experience.) We need to encourage our students to explore the world for all it has to offer, we do not need to know what we want to do in the furture when we are ten years old, at ten a child needs to be out discovering their passions, loves, hates,  them selves - their world.

I would use this video to motivate students in the later years of primary school to intorduce them to the idea that their future can be what they make it to be, to use their education to their advantage, be passionate and life a life full of the things they like to do.

One Teen Says A Brilliant Goodbye To All The Names He Was Called In School | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
Things that matter. Pass 'em on.
JMAC's insight:

A personal resources.

This video of a student claiming back his own name and disregarding all of the names he has been called.

Vinny has been called many names during is time from White to Weird to Gay to Queer but his name is Vinny and that it nothing else. 

This video would work well with in developeing students selfesteme and ownership of their name. 

Working with students development of a lesson on creating there own poem about who they are and why they are. To develop abilities to express personal feelings. To show pride and passion in all that they do.

JMAC's insight:
I believe that the use of short videos should be embrased more in the school setting. The use of high quality music vidoes, like this, for example can be used as a base to build a lesson on society, personal image, acceptance and community. I can see this being used in the upper levels of primary school, grades five and six, focussing on our personal image and looks and how we are periceved by others can be very different to the way in which we percieve our selves. Personally I think the integration of high qualiltty media accross the wider curriculum would boost a students creativity. Also assisiting those who have a more creative mindset to engage with subject matter and class work.

The fact sheets present information on the rivers - water catchment areas, water and land wildlife, ways to ensure water quality as well as ativities and interesting locations along the rivers. 

These fact sheets may be used in the classroom for research projecvts or at the basis of developing excursions to parts of the rivers relating to class work.

Surf Ed | Rip Currents

Surf Ed | Rip Currents | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
JMAC's insight:

How to survive a rip current at ocean beaches.

A resource taken from a different sorce, we need to educate out students with the ability to swim along with being able to read the ocean currents at beaches to avoid drownings at un patrolled and patrolled beachers. 

To choose a safe place to swim at the beach it can be rather difficult. Many factors influence the safest place to swim. To be able to read the current/waves to find the safest spot can help in having the best day at the beach possible. 

Swimming is tought during PE lessons, but how the currents and water flows in rivers and beaches needs to be taught to have an enjoyable summer around the water.

Beyond 'That's So Gay' » YOURSTORY

Beyond 'That's So Gay' » YOURSTORY | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
JMAC's insight:

A collection of stories about the lives of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex people from rural and regional Australia. 

These stories give us truthful and insightful views into the lives of LGBTI Asutralians; what they have been through to be who they are today, how they have accepted them selves. Also giving the viewer hope for a brighter future. 

Many students experience bullying in one form or another during the schooling and further into their adult lives. Some people are unable to overcome bullying, having it take over their lives, effecting them in negative ways. We need to show students that bullying needs to be stops along with this we need to show students how to be accepting and open community members. 

I would use these videos when duscussing gender, diversity and sexuality. Talking about these topics openly with out shame can assisit students in discovering who they are and what they want to be.

This interactive website developed by SBS in colaboration with the Immigration Nation Documentry. 

I have explored this website and discovered that it is full of great little insights into the many facets what make up the Mulitcultural Society of Australia. 

For use in the classroom teachers would be able to take parts from this reosurce to develope lessons or would be able to direct students to the page or particular parts. Offering students the ability to conduct their own research on the topics of Australia, its Culture, and how it influences our daily lives.

The awareness test that made my brain explode.
JMAC's insight:

A short clip to test your awareness.

Using this video in a classroom with the focus on spacial awareness and research topics. To show students that we do not need everything that is happening right in front of our eyes. And for when students are completing research they need to reminded that the information that they need may not be the information that they are looking for.

Some People Are Going To Get Really Mad When They See This Picture. It Just Makes Me REALLY Happy. | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
JMAC's insight:

The image of two young men coming home from Prom. 

Would this image be controversial to have displayed in a school? 
To be able to teach out students about the world around them we need to not just talk about diversity but have it on display.

Using this image in a classroom along with images of male female and female female couples as reference images of what a couple can be; students who are questioning their sexuality could fell included, whilst others could become more tollerant and accepting.

Love Is All You Need? - See The Film

Love Is All You Need? - See The Film | Humanities 1: History and Society | Scoop.it
JMAC's insight:

"Love is all you need?" 

The sexuality reversal movie. Where gay is the norn and straight is not allowed. 

This hard hitting film that left our class speachless, explores many of the isues in todays society of gender, sexuality, acceptance and suicide. A film for some that will be to graphic to watch, for most this brings to light an issue they may have not seen so ingrainded in our society and for some it will bring to light some of their deepest darkest memories of school life and the sturggles they go through on a daily basis. 

I have watched this many times before the screening in class and I still am brought to tears everytime. 

A resource for use with all - teacher porfessional development. Students bullying and culture and the general public to be shocked into action.
