CULTURAL CONNECTIONS: A new, free Global Education resource by ChildFund Australia

Cultural Connections is a new Global Education resource developed to support the Australian Curriculum’s focus on intercultural understanding. It is appropriate to students in their last years of primary school in Civics and Citizenship, English, Geography and HSIE. It is especially appropriate to teachers wishing to integrate technology into their classroom programs. Cultural Connections is presented as a unit of work written using the conceptual framework model developed by Bronwyn MacLeod at UNSW. A range of practical and innovative lesson activities encourage critical thinking and an appreciation of cultural diversity.
This resource has been developed to support and extend the ChildFund Connect program which connects children in Australia, Laos, Timor-Leste and Vietnam. The unit draws on media resources produced by children involved in the program. It also allows students to create their own short films and photostories based around cultural understanding. Interested teachers should visit the website: www.childfundconnect.org Units of work and printable worksheets can be found at: http://childfundconnect.org/sites/default/files/images/cultural-connections.pdf
