The future of water in Australia

The only grades I would use this video in would be 5 and 6. This is because it uses some higher level language that younger students may not understand (I'd most likely play it more than once so we can pick apart the information together as a class). I like this resource because it gives a quick overview of what we as a country consider to be an important use of water. This video could be used as inspiration for an inquiry task, or it could be used to begin lessons about our own smart water usage - i.e. discussions about how much 13 gigalitres is and how it was used by industry and households alone in 2010/11.

What Type of Social Media Personality Are You? [INFOGRAPHIC]

What Type of Social Media Personality Are You? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Myers-Briggs and Social Media |
The Myers-Briggs Indicator tests psychological traits per individual. Turns out, your specific indicators inform how you use social media.


In 1921, psychologist Carl Jung changed the fundamentals of his field. By distributing a psychometric test called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to patients, Jung claimed he could accurately boil down the psychological types of humans into 16 major categories.

Still in use today, the metrics determine whether test takers tend toward certain character traits, such as introversion (I) vs. extroversion (E) or thinking (T) vs. feeling (F). Once taken, test results produce an acronym per individual. For example, “ISTJ” is for an Introvert-Sensing-Thinking-Judging person.


The infographic above, based on data by CPP, publishers of the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, details the qualifiers for each of the test’s characteristics, but furthermore, predicts the psychological types most likely to participate on specific social networks. More extroverts reported using Facebook than introverts, for instance. And people with inclinations toward Feeling spend more time browsing and interacting with people on Facebook, rather than those who tend toward Thinking.
