Teaching Resources: Development

Much of the buzz around Kony 2012 and Invisible Children comes from a deep desire to build a better world – a place more equitable and just for all children. I’m therefore sharing Hans Rosling as an excellent resource for introductions to what’s happening and has happened as far as tracking development is concerned. A few things that I think are highly relevant about this video. Rosling begins by surveying his students and colleagues. Seeing a gap between the world as it is and the world as we perceive it, he insightfully states, “the problem for me was not ignorance, it was preconceived ideas.” (This is further discussed in the previous post, but at the time I was not able to embed videos).
