Web-based learning

Below is an example of how web-based resources can be incorporated into teaching Stage 5 History Syllabus. The focus, Depth Study 4: Rights and freedoms (1945–present), where students study the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples since European “settlement” of Australia.

YouTube EDU can be utilised as a ICT research task, as students investigated the forcible removal of Aboriginal children.

When investigating the struggle of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for rights and freedoms before 1965, and introducing the 1938 Day of Mourning and the Stolen Generations, students can utilised Google Cultural Institute, which has a plethora of relevant information, one I particularly like is; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Activists – Stories of Extraordinary First Australians, which can be accessed via; https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/exhibit/cQLS3Nb4pscFLQ

The integration of ICT, can lead to enhanced outcomes for students, by promoting and supporting the interactive process (NSW Education Standards Authority, n.d.).
