Seeing Challenges Within

“The NVIV (Next Vista Inspiring Video) series of posts are written by Rushton Hurley and designed to provide students and teachers with fascinating discussion prompts.”

In Seeing Challenges Within, Rushton features Butterfly IQ, an ultrasound device used in Nairobi, Kenya.

Rushton gives the following prompt to accompany this video:

“Looking at your list of challenges, are there advantages that are associated with the challenges? For example, might it be that living in a slum means being part of a close community that allows people to rely on each other?

Now think about the people you know where you live. What challenges do they face? Are some of the challenges the same?"

This video was very inspiring because it would encourage students to look within their own community and the challenges that exist. It would help students look beyond their own life challenges and more into the challenges a whole community would face. It would be interesting to have a brainstorming session to think about ways to overcome these challenges.

Please check out the video and think of other prompts you might come up with. Please share.
