Schooling the World: free preview this month

schoolingworld(by Eileen Dombrowski) Schooling the World has just announced that their film is available this month for free preview.  Schooling the World: The White Man’s Last Burden is now streamed with subtitles in eleven languages.  Its free downloadable discussion guide has abundant material that is fairly easily re-framed to make it explicitly relevant to TOK.

I recommend this film highly as background for Indigenous Knowledge.  It prompts some giant knowledge questions about shared knowledge in different cultures — what knowledge is considered most important, how it is learned and validated, and how it is shared from generation to generation.  This is a thought-provoking film, beautiful to watch.
