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