Flippin’ out with second-hand clothing & TEDEd


In our efforts to connect you to important content online, we rely heavily on third-party tools, programs, sites, and content – linking out to important articles, images and videos, for example. For this reason, you may encounter the occasional dead link (or even the dreaded ‘system error’), when the third party makes a change. Most recently this happened to an important Al – Jazeera video we featured in the Social Alterations Google Earth (SAGE) module, when the video became no longer available online.

We’re happy to report that the film, Mitumba: The second-hand road, by Raffaele Brunetti, is BACK online! This makes Nadira and I crazy happy because Maughan Pearce built and designed two learning activities around the film – sharing discussion questions, key resources & useful links.

To celebrate, we’ve flipped the video through TEDEd (careful, flipping videos can be addictive!!)

Here are the links:

In the SAGE module, the lessons are found at the #TOSS stage (just click on the school bus!)
