Videos >We think that more videos like this would raise awareness amongst young people as, in just 2 or 3 minutes, they grab young people’s attention, give them the facts and inspire them to take part. >Videos are an excellent way of informing young people about the importance of education and the issues that face global education. >We like the video on the Send My Friend to School website and also a ‘Send My Friend To School’ video that 2 other pupils from our school made last year. This can be viewed on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOrM9vfMSbg >Our idea for such a video, with script etc. can be found at this link: http://www.slideshare.net/MissTom/billy-and-eilidh
Another idea we had for the Send My Friend to School Day would be for several groups of pupils to take part in an Apprentice-style competition. Each group would have to raise awareness of the importance of global education in different ways, eg .....
>Making a PowerPoint >Designing a banner >Making a video >Designing a poster >Designing a t-shirt For example our poster: And then the school votes for the best at the end of the day
Why we want to be ambassadors and why we feel passionate about global education
In the year 2000 the world leaders set themselves eight targets to improve the world in 15 years - the Millennium Development Goals. But, as 2015 gets closer, the world is still a long way from achieving these Goals. We believe that the key to achieving all of them is education!
These are the reasons we want to be ambassadors - we think that education is the key solution to the world’s problems. That is why we want to be at the forefront of the campaign to ensure that every child on the planet gets an education to benefit themselves and the rest of the world. We feel passionate that inconsistencies in global education need to be eradicated for the good of mankind.
