Critical Thinkers

I thoroughly enjoyed this video!
The video uses BP’s “environmental friendly” video to highlight to kids how important it is to ask questions about whatever you see the internet. Why? How? What was the authors intent? Are they they telling the truth? Whats really going on? The video explores the idea of ‘green washing’ by discussing BP’s choice of bright colours, happy babies and cheerful music, in order to draw away from the true facts about how they run their business. The puppets in this video encourage students to think critically and be wary of what is available online. This is becoming increasingly important as the internet plays a huge role in children’s lives at home and at school nowadays.
