How Teachers can introduce Amazing People to Students

As you will see from the video above, Castle Vale School is one of a number of educational institutes that has introduced Christopher Columbus, Charles Darwin and Michelangelo to their students in a new way, via an avatar audio visual presentation.  This is provided on a complimentary basis, by The Amazing People Club®, a publishing organization, for the purposes of research and development.  Teachers can use the engaging audio visuals as the first five minutes start point of a class for student group discussions.  .

How To Be Involved

Having received access to ‘Amazing People World’, you are invited to participate in a teacher network.  We would also appreciate if you could spread the word about this resource to colleagues and friends.  A teacher or a school that wishes to have access to the website can do so by registering with Marion Andersson, our Education Development Coordinator. This can be done by sending an email to marion@amazingpeopleclub.com. We look forward to gaining the views of teachers and students on the classroom applications, so that we can further develop the series.   

Resources

We will provide the following to assist teachers who wish to see what has already been done, so they can decide how to introduce amazing people to students in their lessons:-

Videos - Educator’s information on the use of audio-visuals to create engaging and entertaining lessons.   Teach amazing lessons and bring the classroom to life. See HERE

Teacher Information & Toolkit - We will make available, our resources that suggest how teachers could use BioViews in classroom applications.  This will also be supported by an Amazing Teaching Strategies Toolkit for teachers to use at will, to facilitate group discussions.  See HERE.

Audios - We will provide an interview with Dr Charles Margerison, an educational psychologist and the author of the series.  See HERE.

Articles - There will be a series of articles that teachers can read that cover educational applications.  Samples can be viewed HERE

Continuing Professional Development – The Amazing People Club will provide educators with documentation, as proof of participation in the development of our multi-media classroom resources.

Amazing People World - This website will be developed continually, so that teachers can choose from a wide variety of categories, covering many topics and cultures around the globe.
