Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

pretty basic overview from the beginning to the end of the victorian and nsw gold rush starting with the first finings of gold in Bathurst and ending after the eureka stockade. The articles are brief but give enough information to develop an understanding.

Laura Aurisch's curator insight, March 16, 2013 1:58 AM

This video is a great Stage 3 resource because it can be used as a visual and audio tool to introduce students to the Eureka Stockade, through explanation of the Eureka flag and the creation of Australia's democracy.

 

Many conflicting viewpoints exist surrounding different issues of the Eureka stockade, such as the debatable topic of whether Victoria was already on the path to democracy or whether the Eureka Stockade corrected Victoria's political course? The actor states “history tells us they lost the battle. Legend tells us they set Australia on the path to democracy”. Regardless which viewpoint is held, the Eureka Stockade battle caused political change replacing the miner's licence with the miner's right to vote.

This video could be used to lead discussion points such as

how and why societies develop rules/licences/taxes

what is a democracy

the importance of representation

 

After watching the video, a lesson plan may involve students describing what they believe the miners meant by their “their rights and liberties”. This could then be compared to the Ballarat Reform League charter (retrievable from: http://www.ballaratreformleague.org.au/) and current international human rights (retrievable from: http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml).

 

The main idea of this site is to initiate the concept of the effect on today's society of the Eureka Stockade legacy of political change and Australia's identity of being a country that promotes a “fair go”.
