CSIS Launches New Tools for Schools

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Container Shipping Information Service (CSIS) is launching a new set of resources designed for schools. Its aim is to provide teachers with the tools and information to introduce discussions on global trade and container shipping into the classroom.

Among the new resources is an interactive animated video which allows users to follow the journey of certain products from source to store with quizzes and information pit-stops along the way. Also available are a ready-made container shipping presentation covering everything from history to interesting facts and figures, and a pack of information about the crucial Panama Canal. You can view the new CSIS resources at www.shipsandboxes.com/

These new educations resources follow a BBC initiative launched in September in collaboration with CSIS. The Box project follows a BBC-branded shipping container around the world as it transports a variety of consumer goods. To keep track of its progress and read the BBC News School Report on The Box, visit www.bbc.co.uk/thebox.
