History in the 21st century classroom


Published on

This is the presentation that I made to the HTAV (History Teachers Association of Victoria) annual conference in Melbourne, Australia. It was a 'hands on session' so only a few choice tools were chosen. Delicious and diigo are two other valuable tools.

  18. 18. • There are plenty of illegal immigrants in australia and each day many are sent home. illegal immigrants tend to have a non valid visa. some people who come here dont have a visa at all. Illegal immigrants come from all over the world. what happens to all of the illegal immigrants once they have been found out is they get relocated back to the country they came from.
  19. 19. Melissa // Oct 18th 2008 at 2:30 pm • That is what happens here in the United States as well. Visas are really a big part of it because visas take a long time to get, and then people just come illegally. Where are the illegal immigrants that come to Australia from? Juliet Pham // Oct 18th 2008 at 5:21 pm • How do you feel about the fact that the illegal immigrants are relocated? Do you believe that it’s fair? I don’t think that it is. I really think that it would depend on the reason. Are the immigrants doing any harm really? That’s pretty interesting that Australia does have illegal immigrants because I never thought a place like Australia would because of the fact that it doesn’t have any countries near it or any land bridges. Travis Bugge // Oct 18th 2008 at 5:21 pm • how do they get there? are they snuck on a plane or something? fur us, its pretty much peole crossing the border, or swimming over here. which part of austrailia do they go to?
