On 18 January, the fist fleet arrived in Botany Bay. The convicts were employed according to their skills. Last shipment of convicts disembarked in Western Australia in 1868, the total number of transported convicts stood at around 162,000 men and women. They were transported here on 806 ships.

Tracing the lives of British and Australian convicts

Tracing the lives of British and Australian convicts | first fleet 1788 | Scoop.it

The University of Liverpool will lead a £1.7million AHRC award to make it possible for people to trace the records of Londoners sentenced to either imprisonment or transportation from 1787 up to the 1920s when the last convict died.

The project, `The Digital Panopticon: The Global Impact of London Punishments, 1780-1925’ funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), will use digital technologies to bring together existing and new genealogical, biometric and criminal justice datasets held by different organisations in the UK and Australia to produce a searchable website.

Australian Aboriginal Culture and History

Australian Aboriginal Culture and History | first fleet 1788 | Scoop.it

Australian Aborigines existed in almost total isolation for at least 60,000 years. They had no written history so only fragments of Dreamtime stories, cave paintings and etchings ramain to record their remarkable past. Only in the last few decades has a systemic investigation revealed the rich and complex culture that they possessed

The arrival of the First Fleet from an aboriginal perspective

Catherine Heil's curator insight, March 31, 2015 10:21 PM

This video would make a great teaching resource for Stage 2 HSIE students, particularly in achieving CCS2.1 outcomes. Using film as a classroom resource also supports pedagogy around multimodal theory which recognises the significant influence of technology and associated multiliteracies on meaning-making (Jewitt, 2005).  

 

This short documentary tells the story of Aboriginal people and the arrival of the First Fleet in a chronological order, and from an Aboriginal perspective. The film contains a wide array of primary sources (including paintings, drawings, letters and diary entries) as well as secondary sources (interviews with historians and Aboriginal elders). It examines some of the changes that occurred to Aboriginal people as a result of British colonisation (such as loss of land, spread of disease, land clearing, etc).  

 

After students view the video, a teaching idea could be encouraging them to use their historical inquiry skills to investigate further historical sources relating to the arrival of the First Fleet and the early days of colonisation in order to respond to the question: "Are they all told through the eyes of an Aboriginal perspective?" 

 

Students would need to apply their literacy skills to explore, analyse and pose questions about historical sources such as letters, written records, interviews, paintings and drawings, maps, tables and timelines. 

 

Evidence of their learning would be through preparing and recording a multimodal presentation to retell the arrival of the First Fleet from either the perspective of the Aboriginal people or the Europeans. This might be an individual or small group task, or a collaborative project with students contributing various parts to a class presentation. 

 

Dependent on the student's abilities, the presentations could take the form of: a movie, podcast or sound recording with images, sound effects and voice narration or dramatisation, an illustrated diary or journal, a digital storybook using free online tools (such as Little Bird Tales, Story Jumper, Tikatok) or mobile apps (such as Creative Book Builder or Book Creator for iOS), or a recorded audio interview or dramatic presentation, however this would need to be supported with a written reflection on what they learnt.   

 

Assessment would be based on their use of evidence from historical sources and a recognition that characters and events can be represented from different perspectives. Through class and group discussions, they will also demonstrate an understanding of empathy, perspectives and cause and effect.
