The world is filled with concerns of people and the resiliency of people. Because there are so many, we may not consider their import or impact. But @hughtheteacher has shared the videos of such issues and people which his students found significant. Are they still issues? Do you understand the people’s struggle and survival? What else could you do? Read this blog and consider your own questions, and perhaps find an answer.
Below are some of the most memorable videos we watched in our classroom this year. Each of these videos sparked spontaneous, thoughtful, and important discussions on a variety of topics. Some videos were discovered by students, some by Ms. Nordio (@msnordio) the Education Assistant in our class, some by me, and many were shared by my amazing PLN on Twitter and Facebook. Enjoy!
