This curation is a task for my EDP4130 Technology subject, and its purpose is to provide a publicly accessible collection of online resources relevant for the classroom implication of the Australian Curriculum: Technologies. It has been designed with the younger years students in mind and is going to help them to better understand the following content descriptor from the Australian Curriculum: Technologies:

 

Knowledge and Understanding

 

- Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies (ACTDEK012).

 

 It is important for students to have an opportunity to understand and learn about food technologies as it will ensure they have the tools to make informed decisions about their own life. 

 

Enjoy!
