CNN Student News Visits North Korea (Kind of)

This morning's episode of CNN Student News features a report from the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) of the Korean Peninsula. It's an interesting look at the nuances of international boundaries, particularly boundaries between enemy countries. The report shows us how a few feet means the difference between legally and illegally being in North Korea.

To learn about the history of the conflict between North and South Korea, take a look at the The Korean "War" For Dummies produced by Keith Hughes.

North Korea Explained in Four Minutes

This afternoon I spent some time jumping from one interesting and educational YouTube video to the next. Many of those videos will be appearing in blog posts here on Free Technology for Teachers. The first one that I want to share is North Korea: Explained. This four minute video from the Vlog Brothers answers the following questions: Is North Korea going to bomb us? Is North Korea a Threat? Is North Korea Communist? Why does North Korea Hate us?

For more background on North Korea, I also recommend The Korean "War" for Dummies produced by Keith Hughes.
