Have you heard about the Big History project? Bill Gates was so inspired by the work of Australian academic, David Christian, that he proposed a partnership to expand the teaching of Big History into classrooms around the world. Here’s a link with a little background.
And here’s a little Big History video called “A Story For Everyone” which catapults you backwards through time and space – a whole new perspective in moments. And don’t forget to scroll down the page a bit to the second video called “What a Difference Humans Make”.
Get the kids. Call the schools. This isn’t Big History. This is HUGE.
