10 Videos You Could Use to Inspire Writing. From the time teachers first viewed The Piano by Aidan Gibbons on a training course, it suddenly became legitimate to use short independent film to inspire writing. Films like the Piano are perfect for lessons as they are often: Emotive and thought-provokingAesthetic - the animation is often captivating and of high qualityShort and therefore easy for children to take in and teachers to build questioning aroundOriginal – as the children have not seen the film before they do not come at the clip with expectations or baggage. I love finding clips which I use with my class as a weekly alternative to class story. I have also found that embedding a clip on our class blog has led to some excellent review writing. Though I have watched these myself and feel they are appropriate to use in class, I do advise you to watch any of these clips all the way through and make up your own mind.

Anatomy of A Tweet- Must See Guide for Teachers Using Twitter for educational purposes starts with understanding how this social networking and microblogging platform works. This is best done via going through the tutorials found in its FAQ page or through videos other volunteers created and posted in YouTube or Vimeo. Now that your students have understood how to create their profile on Twitter, they will need to know what a tweet is all about. This is where "anatomy of a tweet" comes in handy. Anatomy of a tweet is a phrase I learned from SandyK's blog. 1- Avatar This can be a photo or any other graphic that a user is known by. 2- Tweeter's name This is the name of the person sending the Tweet. 3- Twitter username or handle This is a name by which a tweeter is known in the twitter community. 4- Shortened URL These are links that lead to external websites that Tweeters share in their tweets.

School Cafeteria Lunches Around the World Each day in the United States, over 32 million students eat lunches from their school cafeterias. The food consumed accounts for more than half of each students daily calorie intake – which therefore makes the school cafeteria that much more important in delivering healthy food and preventing child obesity. Unfortunately, if you grew up going to an American school and eating food in the cafeteria, it is unlikely you got the most delicious and healthy food. Yet, if you grew up going to a school in another country around the world, you may have had a different experience. SweetGreen is a chain of salad restaurants that run the SweetGreen in Schools program. France: Steak, carrots, green beans, cheese, and fruit. Italy: Local fish with arugula, pasta, caprese salad, bread, and grapes. Spain: Shrimp with brown rice, gazpacho, bread, peppers, and an orange. Brazil: Pork with vegetables, rice with black beans, salad, bread, and baked plantains. Finland: Pea soup, beet salad, carrots, and bread.

Goodnight Mister Tom: A book review Michelle Magorian’s novel Goodnight Mister Tom is a moving tale of an eight-year-old boy, William Beech who is evacuated from London’s Deptford area to go and live in a village called Little Weirwold shortly before the Second World War breaks out. With an abusive history, a weak, pale William arrives in Little Weirwold and is placed under the care of Tom Oakley, a healthy, middle-aged man famous in his close-knit village for being a recluse, just because he lives next to the local church in accordance to the specific instructions of William’s mother. Tom reluctantly agrees to take him in, in the name of ‘national duty’, neither of them considering how this small act of ‘national duty’ was going to change their lives forever. And thus began a journey of recovery and rediscovery for the two of them. This journey makes up the crux of the novel. But Tom finds it impossible to fathom how a parent could convince their child that s/he was inherently bad and punish them for it.

See The Beauty Of Math, Even If You Don’t Understand Math There comes a moment in most of our lives when we realize that some secrets of the universe will remain hidden from us--not because mankind hasn't discovered them, but because those secrets are encoded in complex math and physics problems that few of us have the talent or patience to understand. But Beauty of Mathematics, a new video by Yann Pineill & Nicolas Lefaucheux, gives the mathematically challenged a peek into living equations. The animated triptych shows an equation on the left, its quantified schematics in the center, and its real world manifestation on the right. The video is like academic X-ray vision, but in reality, its inspiration was never math or science. “We wanted to explore beauty with an angle as objective as possible, and we thought of science because it's something that you can’t really deny,” Pineill tells Co.Design. The clip above demonstrates the math behind forces like electricity, probability, and fractals. See more here. [Hat tip: FlowingData]
