Mission of Global SEED: Sustainable Environment Education Demonstrations
 
17:57
These interlocking Montessori-style Sustainable Environment K-12 Education Lessons, plus 3 interviews with globally influential holistic health, hydrogen engineering, and solar cooker pioneers, are designed to save lives and to save the environment of our planet. The scope of the lessons covers our common basic human needs for organic food, clean water, renewable energy, and affordable solar adobe housing, all produced on an individual household scale. They emphasize simple, inexpensive, low-tech, and labor intensive, and completely hands-on solutions to increasingly serious global problems, while emphasizing the hopeful and joyful education of children. The lessons help build holistic health, character development, interdependent cooperation, higher order systems thinking, and a sense of global responsibility. These lessons may appear deceptively simple, but all used together as a whole, they show how to save lives on our planet, by doing more with less while always using Nature as a model. Amazingly, these lessons are entirely student planned, built, filmed and edited. They are not slick or professional, but they are full of love and sincerity. Songs and charts are used to sum up principles. Level One contains lessons on organic gardening, composting, harvesting, seed collection, simple medicinal herbs, small animal husbandry, natural water purification, solar water purification, and solar cooking. Level Two contains lessons on greenhouse construction, household scale fruit and nut orchard, household-scale fish farm, simple solar energy production, and rain water catchment, using earthworks, cistern construction, and gray water re-use. Level Three contains lessons on affordable alternative housing (or classroom) construction, wind energy, bee keeping, and food preservation and storage. Level Two and Three Lessons are currently being built, filmed, and edited by students, and will soon be available on Google Non profit YouTube, as well as available as hard copies. Please enjoy the students and their educational work, please learn, build, and use these skills yourself, and then share them with others in schools and communities worldwide. Lesson plans, materials lists, and globally-applicable Sustainable System Teaching and Evaluation Principles are available, along with a hard copy ten- DVD set of Level One Lessons, for a non-profit Global SEED.org contribution, plus shipping and handling.

2. Principles & Strategies in Environmental Law
 
50:21
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The United States' fragmented, piecemeal approach to environmental law is presented through the cases that led to the creation of major environmental statutes such as the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. The variety of federal agencies and levels of government that participate in creating and implementing regulation contribute to the fragmentation of American environmental law. Environmental law seeks to balance the costs of environmental degradation with the economic benefits that companies reap. However, the uncertainty of environmental costs leads to a slow and ineffective regulation process. 00:00 - Chapter 1. A Course About Defining and Solving Problems 04:09 - Chapter 2.

Imagine KC: Episode 7 - Natural Resources Conservation
 
28:01
In this episode we focus on natural resource conservation in the built environment. The show demonstrates why planning for what we don't build matters just as much as planning for what we do build. Stories look at how preserving the natural environment improves quality of life, reshapes our built environment and creates a more sustainable region by providing benefits to those who live downstream. This episode also highlights communities that are mixing "green" with "grey" infrastructure to address a number of problems. They are making strategic landscape investments to minimize flooding and water pollution, provide healthy recreation options, protect wildlife habitats and beautify neighborhoods. We'll also see how residential and commercial properties are incorporating sustainable features such as rain gardens and green roofs and other green solutions, to bring the built environment and the natural environment closer together. This yearlong series is produced by Angee Simmons, KCPT along with Mid-America Regional Council. Imagine KC is funded by: American Society of Civil Engineers, Garney Family Foundation Fund, Hall Family Foundation, Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City, Kansas City Chapter of the AIA, William T. Kemper Foundation, Lafarge North America, ULI Kansas City, U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and WNET--Blueprint America.

"CRASH COURSE" in Ecological Economics
 
16:29
What exactly is Ecological Economics? How does it differ from mainstream economics, and what does it aim to accomplish in today's world? Similar to a "crash course", this video was created for the purpose of addressing these questions in a direct and comprehensive manner, as well as to highlight the principles that lie at the root of Jon Erickson's research, teaching, and outreach activities. In short, Ecological Economics is a transdisciplinary approach to economic, social, and environmental problem solving. "Transdisciplinary" implies a problem-orientation that draws from a diverse web of knowledge traditionally categorized into the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. "Ecological Economics," explains Erickson, "draws on each perspective, addressing complex problems and building shared understanding that enable solutions that are sustainable, equitable, and efficient." Jon Erickson's current professional activities include being president-elect of the U.S. Society for Ecological Economics, and at The University of Vermont, he is a professor of Ecological Economics as well as the Managing Director of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics. Erickson serves on the faculty for both the Environmental Studies program and the Rubenstein School of Environment & Natural Resources program at UVM. This video is a production of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, an affiliate of the Rubenstein School for Environment & Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. The Gund Institute is a transdisciplinary research, teaching, and service organization focused on developing integrative solutions to society's most pressing problems. We conduct integrative research and service-learning projects on a broad range of topics, offer hands-on learning through our problem-solving workshops and courses, develop online teaching resources and international collaborations through metacourses, and support professional and graduate education through our Graduate Certificates in Ecological Economics and Ecological Design. Learn more about the Gund community of students, scholars and practitioners by exploring our news, publications, and video archives, then contact us to help us build a sustainable, widely shared quality of life.

Environmotional Awareness Shows - Sustainability & Climate Change Education
 
01:26
Please see http://www.awarenessshows.com The Environmotional Awareness Shows give students an emotional attachment to what they are learning about sustainability & climate change. This emotional perspective is often left out within Environmental Education. Music has a proven unrivalled ability to connect at an emotional level. The songs provide much needed emotional release for how students may be feeling about sustainability & climate change, for example, feelings like; fear, anxiety, despair, anger, frustration, apathy, indifference, & guilt. This emotional release often leads to motivation, stimulation & enjoyment around the topics & towards making changes in their school & communities. The show is a music concert with each song prefaced by dialogue containing practical information around a given topic then combined with an emotional element which is then re-enforced by the music & lyrics. At the conclusion of the show there is opportunity for discussion & information & resources are provided that can be easily implemented in their lives allowing them to become active agents of positive change in their communities along with access to a range of follow-up support and resources on & offline including the Social, Self & Environmental Awareness Blog. Topics - sustainability, climate change, water, energy, ecology, combined with climate change fear, despair, anger, motivation & inspiration Outcomes - shifted attitudes & released feelings around climate change & sustainability, motivation & inspiration to take action, deeper understanding of the key topics & current global issues, ongoing information & opportunities for joining with other young people involved in climate change & sustainability work

Top 10 Proven Classroom Management Tips for Teachers
 
04:05
Tweet this Video: http://clicktotweet.com/UfFee http://www.ampli.com/ Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/AmplivoxPortableSoundSystemsandLecterns Classroom management Definition: "A term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students." Listed below are several techniques, ideas, resources, and tips for teachers to hone the right skills to conquer their classroom: 1. Start the year tough. Many teachers make the mistake of starting the school year with a poor discipline plan or without any classroom management plan at all. It is so much easier to start tough and then lighten up, then to start light and discipline more. At the beginning of the year, students quickly assess the situation and realize what they will be allowed to get away with. Starting the year tough will give you control and flexibility. 2. Be fair to all students. 3. Be prepared for disruptions---and don't let them phase you. Students often amplify their teacher's reaction to disruptions—be ready for them and be ready to calmly and quickly pick up where you left off. Having a joke or interesting comment ready to bring attention back to you will allow you to transition back to the material. 4. Instill high expectations 5. Incentivize good behavior. Motivating students though rewards like no homework, watching a video, ice cream, or free-activity time can help students by giving them a goal. This can also help students hold each other accountable to class goals and stigmatize negative behavior even more. 6. Overplan. 7. Have a clearly expressed disciplinary plan...with consequences! Make sure students know the disciplinary ladder well. Any hint of ambiguity can leave a loophole for excuses (and students are great at making excuses!). Warn students when they are close to breaking a rule so there will be no ambiguity when that line is crossed. If you constantly raise your voice to get the attention of the class, consider investing in a classroom amplification system which can save your voice by projecting it. The iPod Portable PA system is a great system for classrooms because it features an iPod dock that simultaneously plays and charges your iPod and also has outputs for a projector. 8. Focus on relationships. A teacher than can connect positively with their students will make students behave and easier to manage because students will regard the teacher much like a friend. Using positive reinforcement to build a positive reputation for the child gives the student confidence that their teacher believes in them and will make it harder to disappoint the teacher with bad behavior or work ethic. 9. Be careful about confrontation 10. Be patient and keep practicing. Don't worry if things don't go well right away...controlling your classroom is learn-able but will always be a challenge with some students. Whether you are teach a kindergarten class, at an elementary school, middle school, or high school, it is best to "Expect the Unexpected" and be ready for adversity!
