In the ClassroomUse this site in your health class or as part of a discussion of economic and cultural challenges in Africa. You may want to use a data visualization tool such as Many Eyes, (reviewed here) to locate AIDS data in a visual form for sharing on interactive whiteboard (Search Many Eyes for "AIDS" to find many visualized forms of HIV/AIDS data from around the world). Have students use the interactive whiteboard to present their findings and hypotheses about the relationships between health data and economic data in Africa.

In the ClassroomPlan an HIV/AIDS awareness activity in your health class or as part of a discussion of current events. Have students research global HIV/AIDS statistics, then present this information to their peers. You may want to accompany this data from AVERT.org with a data visualization tool such as Many Eyes, (reviewed here). Invite student groups to share both numerical and visual HIV/AIDS data on interactive whiteboard (Search Many Eyes for "AIDS" to find many visualized forms of HIV/AIDS data from around the world).

In the ClassroomUse this tool to find lessons and/or animations in a variety of topic areas. There are "ready to go" movies and more in health, social studies, art & music, engineering & technology, and other topics. Share the sites on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Provide this link on your class website for students to access both in and out of the class. Save this link in your favorites and check back to see "what's new."
Grades5 to 12
There are some items of interest on the top menu bar: Teacher Ideas to Share, Teacher Guides, and More Teacher Resources. You might be interested in their offer of a free DVD with selected, edited for the classroom, programs from the 20/20 T. V. series.
In the ClassroomUse these streaming videos to help create "background knowledge" for your student, and improve listening and note taking skills. Small groups of students could rotate through stations with the video, or you can use it with the whole class. Either way, students can practice their two column (Cornell) note taking skills using the left column for keywords and/or questions and the right side of the paper for important information about the topic they are viewing. Have students discuss and look up answers to their questions.
If using the videos as a whole class, you may want to use a discussion program that allows "backchanneling" such as Socrative,reviewed here, so everyone can comment on the issue(s) presented and see each other thoughts.
Another idea is to use the videos as a jump-off point for research by small groups. There are many huge topics you can break into parts for small groups to investigate after watching Stossel's take on it. Then challenge the groups to create a multimedia presentation using one of many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.
I found lots of interesting information here. Great work Thanks for the share loved reading the article, please do share more like this with us .Temple, TAMPS, Grades: 0 - 12
