Tackling Racism with ClickView

Tackling Racism with ClickView
March 21 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The Day was started by the United Nations in 1966 and is designed to remind us about the profound damage to individuals and societies caused by racial discrimination and spur people to work towards eliminating racism. From radical de-racialisation surgery to meeting an Indigenous Taekwondo champion who is fighting racism, ClickView has gathered seven topical resources from the ClickView Exchange to provide examples of racism in Australia and abroad, spread awareness of this issue and elicit discussion about how it can be combated. If…

It’s Time for Little Lunch: the Australian Children’s Television Foundation’s exciting new series!

It’s Time for Little Lunch: the Australian Children’s Television Foundation’s exciting new series!
As teachers, it can be difficult to admit that children learn just as much in the playground as they do in the classroom. A game of soccer out on the field or a candid chat about what’s happening at home can be just as crucial to a child’s developmental well-being as time spent honing their academic abilities. As constructivist paradigms such as project-based learning and student-centred pedagogy rise in popularity, it may be time for us to acknowledge that the “social” is equally as important to embed into our lessons as quality content and curricular…

Mark International Women’s Day with ClickView

Mark International Women’s Day with ClickView
Tuesday 8 March marks International Women’s Day. This year the Day’s theme is #PledgeForParity, while women continue to contribute significantly to cultural, economic, social and political achievements around the world there is still much progress to be made in reaching gender parity. In fact, in 2015 the World Economic Forum made the sobering projection that at its current rate of change gender parity would not be achieved until 2133. From the pivotal women of the Middle Ages to the rise of contemporary feminism we here at ClickView have curated videos from the ClickView Exchange to…

Cracking Code for Primary Students

Cracking Code for Primary Students
From kindergarten to the twelfth grade, our children are consuming technology at an alarming rate, but do they know how it works? “We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.” - Carl Sagan Carl Sagan voiced his concern at the growing disconnection between the users and creators of technology in his last interview in 1996. Two decades later, it seems that this warning has remained unheeded. Smart technology and the Internet of Things promise a world of convenience, with devices that cater…

The story behind ClickView Live

The story behind ClickView Live
Like many people out there I would consider myself something of a tech-head. 
I can figure out a lot of seemingly complex technological problems (mainly thanks to Google) but I have close to no idea what is happening behind the scenes when I press search and seem to get exactly what I’m looking for. Late last year I spent a few months working closely with Sahan, William and Wilan, three members of the ClickView development team, whilst they created a new product: ClickView Live – a live streaming platform for schools and the larger education sector…

Romeo and Juliet: Why We Need to Celebrate Its Minor Characters

Romeo and Juliet: Why We Need to Celebrate Its Minor Characters
The study of Shakespeare is a long-standing tradition in literary education, and most of us leave high school well-versed in the Bard’s themes and characters. Whether it’s “To be or not to be?” that causes us to question the very point of our existence, or the quick-witted Bottom that introduces us to the risqué humour of innuendo, Shakespeare often leaves a marked impact on our understanding of language and meaning itself. As educators, one of our greatest challenges is teaching such canonical material in new and exciting ways. Romeo and Juliet is, perhaps, Shakespeare’s most…

ClickView flips learning on its head with interactive videos
Challenge for video learning The biggest road block to showing videos to a class, whether it is a kindergarten or year 12 class, is maintaining student engagement. It can’t be monitored, it wastes valuable class time and it is difficult to prevent. We recognised this as a challenge for our schools worldwide and have come up with a solution. Introducing interactive videos ClickView Interactive Videos come with built-in questions and additional resources. Whilst watching students will be presented with questions about the video content and are encouraged to answer them before continuing, making them a valuable…

The Voice of Ice – three former ice addicts tell their harrowing story

The Voice of Ice – three former ice addicts tell their harrowing story
Crystal meth-amphetamine, commonly known as 'ice',  has emerged in recent years as an extremely dangerous drug, with devastating consequences. As ice use spreads through the country, it has become extremely important to equip young people with knowledge about this drug and its consequences. How widespread is the Ice problem? Last month, the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) reported that ice-related incidents in Australia have doubled in the last decade. Since 2001, hospital admissions have increased to nearly 300 per million people, and over 8 per million people have died from the drug. Professor Michael Pharrell, Director…
