Celebrating International Youth Day with Inspirational Videos

By Suzanna Taylor on Aug 11, 2020 1:09:38 PM

The theme of International Youth Day 2020 is youth engagement for global action. This year, we’re celebrating the work that young people have done to enrich and improve political institutions and processes on a local, national, and global level. Youth engagement is vital because it helps to “increase the fairness of political processes by reducing democratic deficits, contributes to better and more sustainable policies, and also has symbolic importance that can further contribute to restoring trust in public institutions, especially among youth” (source).

Women's History with Boclips

By Suzanna Taylor on Mar 5, 2020 12:41:34 PM

March is Women’s History Month and to celebrate, we’re helping you to bring women’s history to life across the curriculum. From women in art to female mathematicians and beyond, we’ve collected the best videos to inspire your learners, many with original interviews and footage. This is an empowering way to present women’s history because it challenges traditional third-person, masculine perspectives. While this is especially important for social studies teachers, no subject can be taught without considering its history and how it will develop in the future. Find out how women are key protagonists in the history of art, science, literature, and business, and how the fight for equality is still ongoing.
