War Child now has a free online education resource site designed by and for young people. Named ‘Angry Mob’ to reflect young people’s feelings of outrage at global conflict, the site is packed with content for teachers and students alike and provides an effective tool for research, discussion and debate around the complex issues of war. In addition the site also offers students ways of taking positive action through blogging, video uploads, quizzes and an opportunity to comment on current news.
The site has been designed with student safety at the forefront. No personal details will be shared, ensuring a safe online environment for students to express their views. It is hoped the site will also provide an opportunity for schools and teachers to celebrate all their active participation achievements online, no matter what the cause was.
When you join you will:
- Give your students a chance to become actively engaged in global issues.
- Support your teaching and learning with online technology.
- Create a space where your school can celebrate its active participation initiatives.
- Allow students to learn about conflict, global issues and War Child’s work with marginalised children.
- Help students translate learning in the classroom into practical action and a real desire to make a positive difference in the world.
- Be able to use it as a citizenship or cross-curricular resource.
If you would like your school to have a free profile page where you can demonstrate your commitment to local, national and global community initiatives whilst providing a forum for your students to become active citizens, all you need to do is contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 020 7916 9276. You will then be able to promote school events, acknowledge your students' positive involvement and demonstrate your commitment to active participation.
“The notion of forums and blogs about global issues whilst engaging in social networking has huge student appeal. We will be making extensive use of the site as a teaching medium in order to forge further links with other schools; extend global understanding and to promote debate”.
