When introducing intercultural aspects of worldview, differing points of view and unique cultural perspectives, it can be useful (and engaging) to talk about our perceptions and the limits of our minds. Here are 3 YouTube film clips that do a great job in provoking discussion, shifting attitudes and opening minds.
“Aggggh, Now I understand.”
A – Perception Card Trick
Thanks to Richard Wiseman for making the film and publishing it on YouTube. It comes in two parts – Stop the film half way through and ask the class what have they noticed? – This is a well made professional film.
B – Perception and Focus Film
Classic Intercultural training film from Daniel J. Simons
Thanks for posting on YouTube Daniel.
You may buy Daniel’s DVD at www.viscog.com
C – Thinking Fast and Slow in fun form
Film showing examples of System 1 and System 2 thinking with some great interactive moments.
The film was put together and posted on YouTube by AsapScience – Thanks
