Ornella Whelan's curator insight, June 1, 2014 10:34 PM

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program (SAKGP) has developed a range of food education resources.  The program engages students from 8 to 12 years of age with hands-on learning experiences.  Having worked closely with teachers, students and education departments, the SAKGP resources are aligned with the Australian Curriculum.  Furthermore, the program provides teachers with the training and resources necessary to deliver the program.

 

Instead of reading about how food is produced and prepared, students are engaging with the process and using technologies to grow and prepare the foods. Aspects of the program align with the Technologies curriculum.  In particular, the elaboration for ACTDEK022 suggesting that students experiment with tools, equipment, combining ingredients and techniques to design and make food products or meals for selected groups for healthy eating taking into consideration environmental impacts and nutritional benefits is addressed in many of the food production and preparation lessons (ACARA, 2014).

 

The resources would be of great value to engage those students who, at times, find classroom work challenging.  Moreover, the knowledge gained from the lessons could be shared with the student’s families and other year levels.

Via Iain Stanger
Eugene Seddon's insight:

This article that was originally curated on Learnist, THE 21ST CENTURY PE TEACHER: Incorporating Phone Apps into Physical Education has the intent of preparing Health and Physical Education teachers for the 21st century. This website tells how the use of smartphones’ and the available apps today can be used and implemented within the H.P.E KLA, to be used by PE teachers and/or students. The website lists 10 different apps that can be used within the H.P.E KLA to support learning and also offers valuable insight into how they could be used and linked to the H.P.E and Technologies’ KLA within the Australian curriculum (ACARA). Educators can link this pedagogy to the H.P.E content descriptor Movement and physical activity (ACARA). Students will have an opportunity to compose movement sequences including balances to travel from point to point, perform activities that involve a transition from one skill to another, such as from dribbling to shooting or from leaping to balancing as well as many others.  By incorporating these apps and namely Cariograph as an example with the classroom and H.P.E setting, educators could also target the digital technologies strand of Technologies by having students collect, manipulate and interpret the data. Cardiograph can be used as a convenient way of collecting and measuring resting heart rates, heart rates after exercise, and blood flow as part of practical applications in associated physiology units and make sense or interpret results that have been discovered.  This website is a terrific page that provides great iPhone/iPad apps for educators to link Technologies with Health and Physical Education within the Australian curriculum.

The Food Detectives Fight BAC!

The Food Detectives Fight BAC! | Connecting Technologies within the classroom to Health and Physical Education | Scoop.it

The Food Detectives Fight BAC! series gives kids a fun way to learn about food-borne illnesses. While listening to music and helping the Food Detectives solve cases, kids will learn important concepts about hygiene, food preparation, and bacteria.

Ornella Whelan's curator insight, May 31, 2014 5:04 AM

The Food Detectives Fight BAC! game has been designed for 8-12 year olds.  The interactive resource promotes: the importance of washing hands and surfaces; practices to avoid cross-contamination; and storing and cooking foods at correct temperatures.

 

The resource further supports student learning with links to additional student and teaching texts and informative websites. Furthermore, there are hygiene and food preparation learning activities:

 

Soapy Solutions: experimenting with different hand washing strategies to learn the most effective way to kill bacteria.

 

Be a Good Egg: cooking eggs for different lengths of time to investigate the effect heat has on eggs.

 

Cooling Counts: boiling water to learn how to use a thermometer, as well as information about the 'danger zone.'

 

The experiments would  suitably address the Year 5 and 6 Australian Curriculum: Technologies content description of investigating the role of food preparation in maintaining good health and the importance of food safety and hygiene (ACARA, 2014). 

 

To further enhance the value of this resource, students could identify a real life context that relates to one of the experiments and design a process to ensure that food and hygiene guidelines are followed.

Ornella Whelan's curator insight, May 31, 2014 4:06 AM

Developed by Queensland Health, in collaboration with the Home Economics Institute of Australia and the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, this six part resource promotes five key messages relating to food safety: keep hands and nails clean; keep the kitchen clean; handle food safely; cook high-risk foods thoroughly; and keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold.

 

Part A: Provides teachers with example teaching experiences, a list of recommended resources and homework and extension ideas.

Part B: Provides teachers with an extensive range of student worksheets.

Part C: Includes a variety of black line masters for projectors.

Part D: Informs teachers of current information and research in the area of food safety.

Part E: Explains the Health Promoting Schools (HPS) approach, which can be used to expand the concept of food safety at a whole school level.

Part F: Provides references and links to further food safety related publications, videos and websites.

 

Although this resource has been specifically developed for secondary students, many of the ideas within the resource are suitable for Year 5 and 6 classrooms.

 

The Food Safety Checklist Design Challenge challenges students to design, make and use a food safety checklist to promote good practice related to hygiene, food storage, food preparation and cooking in the home (Queensland Health, n.d.). This learning experience would address both the ACTDEK022 (investigate the role of food preparation in maintaining good health and the importance of food safety and hygiene) and ACTDEP024 (critique needs or opportunities for designing, and investigate materials, components, tools, equipment and processes to achieve intended design solutions) content descriptors of the Australian Curriculum: Technology (2014).

 

I believe the design challenges within this resource support the Australian Curriculum design and technologies rationale, which supposes that students use design thinking and technologies to generate and produce designed solutions for authentic needs (ACARA, 2014).

Yes…The digital classroom. Yes, it is here, even if you can’t see it. It’s in the minds of your students, even if you make them switch off their mobile phones. It’s a nagging presence in the back of your mind, even if you still insist on using a cassette player from the 1980s in your classroom. The world is changing even if you are in denial.

Via Dr Peter Carey
Eugene Seddon's insight:

The webpage Food; A Fact Of Life has the intent of assisting Health and Physical Education teachers in sourcing information from a healthy eating and lifestyle website. Food - a fact of life provides a wealth of free resources about healthy eating, cooking, food and farming for children and young people aged 3 to 16 years. There are many different tabs and links to follow that covers content descriptors with the H.P.E KLA on the ACARA website including Planning and practicing strategies to promote healthy eating, safety and wellbeing and also opportunities to Investigate community resources and strategies to seek help about health, safety and wellbeing. These are exemplified from there site via the cook coach and healthy eating week tabs. educators also have the opportunity to link the H.P.E strand and target the digital technologies strand of Technologies by having students create stories that is available to complete that is with lesson activities, videos, worksheets and IWB activities. This website also allows educators to use technology via video podcasts that focus on different aspects of food and nutrition. Each episode is hosted by a Nutrition Scientist presenting current information on healthy eating and nutrition. This website is a terrific page that provides information to promote and plan for healthy eating for educators that also links’ Technologies with Health and Physical Education within the Australian curriculum.
