ESA update

New things from ESA to support Australian schools implementing the Australian Curriculum,  as of March 2013.

New Content:

  • Large number of contributed resources that will be available via Scootle and jurisdicitonal portals
  • Partner projects – ESA works with many partners to make content available. The list of recent partners contributing content is here.  Additionally there are self-hosted projects like ABC Splash, ABC Splash Live. There may be content held in our own jurisdiction that could be added to the national collection. – think about that possibility.

New Services:

Simpler  Scootle account registration for teachers

www.teachingacenglish.edu.au and several other sites that are being developed with other partners to support teaching the Australian Curriculum

Teacher Ideas Exchange – a new project to enable self-sustaining networks for teachers. Target is the Australian Curriculum, but in reality ANY topic could be a network – eg Using Origami in Year 2
