The Australian Curriculum v7.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures

The Australian Curriculum v7.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures | All the things iPad | Scoop.it

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, rich and diverse. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Identity is central to this priority and is intrinsically linked to living, learning Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, deep knowledge traditions and holistic world view.

A conceptual framework based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ unique sense of Identity has been developed as a structural tool for the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures within the Australian curriculum. This sense of Identity is approached through the interconnected aspects of Country/Place, People and Culture. Embracing these elements enhances all areas of the curriculum.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.

Primary teachers need to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their teaching. Use the ideas in this website to frame planning.

Clare O'Connor's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:32 AM

This is going to be a Cross-curricular priority, so I thought it useful to add for our RMLP teachers and in-house education providers.

Greta Brewin's curator insight, October 31, 2013 3:17 AM

I thought it would be a really helpful resource to store a direct link to the cross-curriculum priorities page on the ACARA website. This links to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories and cultures cross-curricular priority information page. As teachers you need to link you lesson and unit plans to the Australian Curriculum, and anything that falls under this priority can be justified as a viable learning outcome, because of the priority. Which I think is great, students and teachers need to learn about our indigenous history.

I've been looking for a good easy animation program. This might be it! 

Fiona Beal's curator insight, April 8, 2014 11:25 AM

Plotagon lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose characters, settings and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post | All the things iPad | Scoop.it
Mobile devices like iPads and Androids have transformed the way we experience boredom. No longer is a wayward commuter forced to play Snake or Tetris, occupying themselves in a hardly satisfying, and utterly pixelated virtual reality. The tablet or smart phone-wielding travelers can now immerse themselves in an entire library of art and culture-related distractions, finding solace in everything from a Vincent van Gogh game to a digital version of the Louvre.

Just this week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a 140-year-old cultural stalwart of New York City, went the way of the future and introduced an iPhone app. Described as "exceedingly simple and modest" by Forbes, the move to make art more accessible is something we can't help but love. So, in the spirit of the Met's 21st century attitude, we've put together a list of mobile museums and art-honoring programs that will spark creativity in your everyday life.

Behold, 18 apps every creative and artist type should download now:

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | All the things iPad | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
