Videos On Milgram & Stanford Prison Experiments – Not Blocked By YouTube Safety Mode

milgram

I’m beginning to teach about the Milgram and Stanford Prison Experiments in my IB Theory of Knowledge classes.

I’ve always has a rich collection of related resources at our class blog, but many of the videos are blocked by YouTube’s Safety Mode (see The Best Ways To Deal With YouTube’s Awful Safety Mode) and, before I took the time to download the videos and upload them again to the blog, I decided take a few minutes to see if there were some equally good ones that were not blocked.

Here’s what I found:

The Milgram Experiment from Johannes Jørgensen on Vimeo.

Stanford Prison Experiment Overview (13 min) from Ryan Beck on Vimeo.

Stanford Prison Experiment-Zimbardo from Sansa Morse on Vimeo.

“Building Relationships With Families of ELLs”

Building Relationships With Families of ELLs is the title of my latest Education Week Teacher column.

In it, Rusul Alrubail, Anna Bartosik, Jordan Lanfair, Anabel Gonzalez, Karen Nemeth, and Judie Haynes offer suggestions on how to engage with parents of English Language Learners. It’s a special post guest-edited by Rusul.

Here are some excerpts:

My Two Education-Related Star Wars Resources

1105735004

With Star Wars mania upon us all this week, I thought it would be a good time to share a few education-related resources I’ve shared in the past.

First, awhile back I wrote a column for Education Week headlined What ‘Star Wars’ Can Teach Educators About Parent Engagement.

Secondly, here’s a video included in The Best TV/Movie Scenes Demonstrating A “Growth Mindset”:

I used to have a great video on Star Wars and Bloom’s Taxonomy on The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom list.  However, that was apparently taken off-line recently because of copyright issues.  However, you can still see lots of other mashups of popular movies and TV series there teaching Bloom’s.

Let me know if you have other Star Wars education-related resources!
