Apps in Education: Sharing Australian Aboriginal Culture

Apps in Education: Sharing Australian Aboriginal Culture | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

Australian Aboriginal culture has existed continuously for more than 40 000 years. They have developed sophisticated social organisations, complex legal systems and a numerous practices and ceremonies based around their Dreamtime beliefs. There is no way we could ever hope to capture all their knowledge of animal behaviour, or of the seasons and bush tucker that each one brings. For that matter we will never know the full extent of the geographical, ecological or land management skills that these communities possess but at least some of them are documenting different aspects of their culture for future generations.

Apps in Education: Teaching Kids about Nutrition | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

Education about nutrition is an important part of any school curriculum.
