Virtual Teacher Australian History Trove Pictures of Australia Take a look at the Picture Australia site. This site will not be officially lauched for a while yet. I provides a single point of access to over 450,000 digitised images from pictorial collections of many leading cultural heritage institutions. It's a fantastic resource. The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures I’ve compiled several “The Best…” lists that sites where you can learn about the geography, data, languages, and holidays of different countries around the world. Those resources are important, but I think it’s like learning the words, but not the music, of a song. So I thought I’d develop a separate list just focused on helping students learn about the cultures of different countries, and would love to hear additional suggestions.

Mimosa Soup – French Women Don't Get Fat Pity those who don’t love the sweet taste and delicate texture of leeks. Eventually, you probably will. But if it’s not to your liking, follow the example of my cousin in Aix-en-Provence. After the birth of two sons she needed to shed a few pounds, but didn’t love leeks. A neighbor suggested a variation of “magical leek soup" with the “trick” of hiding the leek among other flavorful and healthful ingredients.
What is global education? The heart of global education is enabling young people to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the world. Global education emphasises the unity and interdependence of human society, developing a sense of self and appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social justice and human rights, as well as building peace and actions for a sustainable future in different times and places. Global education promotes positive values and assists students to take responsibility for their actions and to see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Australian global educators place particular emphasis on developing relationships with our neighbours in the Asia–Pacific and Indian Ocean regions.
What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti Interested in knowing a bit more about international Human Rights Law? In the past decades, the general principles enunciated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights have given life to a body of law: international human right law. Among the key documents that expand on the UN UDHR are the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which, together with the UDHR, form the so-called “International Bill of rights.” Take a look at the ‘core’ human rights instruments and at the UN bodies set up to protect human rights and monitor their implementation.

Where to Find Good Educational Videos There’s a right and a wrong way to use videos in the classroom. Not all videos are primed for instructional use, and not all instruction lends itself to video. However, pairing a great video with the tools students need to engage with it can lead to a deeper understanding of or alternate perspective on what’s being taught. Check out the September Education Update article “Showing Videos in the Classroom: What’s the Purpose?” Sustainable Palm Oil WWF-Australia has been working to promote the transition away from conventional palm oil production to Certified Sustainable Palm Oil that conserves forests, protects species, and secures livelihoods.
