Australian Indigenous tools and technology - australia.gov.au

Australian Indigenous tools and technology - australia.gov.au | Indigenous Technology | Scoop.it
Jack Mathewson's insight:

This resource was created by the Australian government and provides and outline for some of the Indigenous technologies utilised by Australian Indigenous people such as: implements, weapons, message sticks, nets baskets and bags, water craft, bush food implements, shelters, and trade technologies. It gives an in depth explanation of the uses for and the how these technologies were created. It is very interesting and a great basis for a unit on Indigenous Technologies. Probably not appropriate for students to read in one go, but useful nonetheless. This resource also compliments the current Queensland Technology curriculum and ACARA’s (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority) Cross Curricular Priorities. It is a very assistive and interesting resource that is aimed at primary aged students.

Aboriginal Technology - Our Clever Country - Science In Depth - The ScIslands - Questacon

Aboriginal Technology - Our Clever Country - Science In Depth - The ScIslands - Questacon | Indigenous Technology | Scoop.it
Jack Mathewson's insight:

This resource was released by Questacon in 2012. It allows students an understanding of the background of Australian Aboriginal technologies and the reason these technologies had to be invented e.g. labour–saving technologies that make hunting easier. This resource has particular emphasis on the boomerang. It gives an explanation of how these technologies were used, how they work and other interesting facts about this particular technology. This resource also compliments the current Queensland Technology curriculum and ACARA’s (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority) Cross Curricular Priorities. It is a very assistive and interesting resource that is aimed at primary aged students.

Introduction To Aboriginal Technology

Used for information and research by students and educational institutions worldwide, the Indigenous Australia has quickly established itself as a valuable resource on Aboriginal art, history and culture in Australia.
Jack Mathewson's insight:

This webpage outlines the correlation between some Indigenous Technologies with The Dreaming. It is provided by Indigenous Australia. Emphasis for Technology is placed on items such as a didgeridoo, bull roarer, Boomerang and Aboriginal Axe. This webpage could assist in not only Technology education, but Social Studies and other Key Learning areas of the Queensland and Australian Curriculums. It could also be adapted for primary school aged students.

Aboriginal Technology - Learning Sequence 1

Aboriginal Technology - Learning Sequence 1 | Indigenous Technology | Scoop.it
Jack Mathewson's insight:

This curriculum resource was released by the NSW (New South Wales) Board of Studies. The resource has a particular emphasis placed on Australian Aboriginal Technologies and is pitched at a primary school level age. This resource provides teachers with the ability to teach the current Queensland Technology curriculum along side other Key Learning Areas. (Mathematics, SOSE, Science and English) It also caters for the Australian Curriculums’ Cross Curricular priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. (ACARA, 2013) Although this is a NSW Board of Studies initiative, it could be moulded and adapted to aide in the teaching of the Queensland Studies Authority’s technology syllabus. It provides several lessons, teaching ideas and resources that could prove useful in the learning of Technology.

Jack Mathewson's insight:

This video of the creation of a modern Aboriginal bar canoe was created by the Australian Broadcasting Cooperation in 2009, in its child based Behind the News Segment. It is a quick way of showing the genius of the ancient Aboriginal Technology and how it made their lives easier. It gives a thorough explanation of how Aboriginal people created their bark canoes and the processes that were involved in this. This resource also compliments the current Queensland Technology curriculum and ACARA’s (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority) Cross Curricular Priorities. It is a very assistive and interesting resource that is aimed at primary aged students.

aboriginal_plant_use_and_technology.pdf

Jack Mathewson's insight:

This resource was created by the National Botanic Gardens Educational Services in 2000. The resource gives a general background to technology and several plant based technologies adapted by Australian Aboriginal people. Students in upper primary and early high school could benefit from gaining a general understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander plant technology. It also describes how Technology assisted in making Australian Aboriginal lives easier. This page would also be a great resource for the teaching of the Queensland Technology curriculum and ACARA’s (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority) Cross Curricular Priorities. (ACARA, 2013)
