Fibre production in the Australian Curriculum
The Australian Curriculum Technologies, utilises the context of Fibre production, in conjunction with other key learning areas, as a means for students to learn about the production of fibres they regularly use and the environments in which these fibres are produced (ACARA, 2013). Sustainable fibre production is a national and global issue. It is important for students to know and understand where their fibre comes from and they need to ""develop skills in creating designed solutions involving the production of fibre"" (Anderson, 2013 p. 3 ).
This curation includes a range of web based resources which consider the ""key processes involved in fibre production"". These key processes as stated by ACARA, (2013) include, “production processes, marketing, consumption and the sustainable use of resources.”
These resources were collected in line with the
Technologies curriculum, Design and Technology subject.
