Hi from Chelmsford, UK. Bristol is for sure a rich & beautiful city albeit with a horrific past- still adorned with statues of slave owners- as I remember from my last visit to Uni. Bristol for an interview with dept. of Education. I am glad it is symbolic how you have started decolonising efforts from there. Highly pertinent in terms of reparative and epistemic justice.
Leon Tikly
01:08:14
Here is a link to the Universal City platform of which the poem is a part. The video and platform have been developed by CARGO, a collective of Bristol based artists http://www.universalcity.co.uk/
Leon Tikly
01:10:24
These are some great resources that CARGO have developed that show the positive contribution of people from African and African diaspora descent. I can highly recommend these for use in KS3 history! https://cargomovement.org/classroom/
Darnelle
01:15:31
Sylvia Collicott was my ITT lecturer and in 1980 she was talking about decolonising the curriculum ;https://www.haringey.gov.uk/local-democracy/about-council/equalities/connections

Nothing changes unless we are prepared to start that 'difficult' conversation.
Rafael Mitchell

Emma Pearson, Sheffield, England.
01:41:07
Such important points, Tania. About HE (how and who it excludes), school curricula and 'thinking inwards' as well as outwards - something we need to be doing quite urgently in terms of our (England) national curriculum.
Rebecca Roberts
01:42:29
I am working with the British Council on some projects in a Bristol primary school. The 'UK Aid' logo on the Connecting Classrooms material does concern me and its underlying message perhaps of dependent rather than 'genuinely mutual' relationships?
AWAGAS GROUP Skrylnikova Victoria
01:42:57

Kirsti Lempiäinen
02:04:20
Thank you so much for this webinar, thanks to all panelists and speakers!
cara
02:05:08
Excellent perspectives Ben
Jackie
02:06:42
Thank you Ben for the perspective that the national curriculum offers some freedom to decolonize the meso curriculum
Janbee Mopidevi
02:08:04
Agree with you, Tania. It is not easy where religion has a strong hold especially with a nationalist fervour where education has become more of a political tool to perpetuate propaganda. I feel that students are never free ideologically to explore critical and multiple standpoints.
Arathi Sriprakash
02:09:40
Here's the unesco paper by Tania: https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000374157
David Watt
02:09:44
All panelists have offered practical examples that contribute to decolonising. I like the idea that this is curricular innovation not just backward looking
Arathi Sriprakash
02:10:12

Janbee Mopidevi
02:12:02
Thanks for sharing Tania’s paper, Arathi. Would love to read as one of my research interests is also post colonial and post modern esp from alternative philosophies of Jiddu Krishnamurti and Rabindranath Tagore.
Hugo Cruz Marques
02:12:27
Thank you all for sharing knowledge. Obrigado!
Julie Ward
02:12:54
Educators need to be trained in inter-sectionality so they understand the impact of multiple discrimination
Magda Karjalainen
02:13:10
Referring to the comment above, looking into the PAST is not the same as looking backwards
Hugo Cruz Marques
02:14:29
Agree Julie. Intersectionality and experience centered learning processes.
Alya
