First Fleet and convict libguide

A libguide is a guide that contain listings of recommended resources for finding information, such as databases, journals, books, web pages and other useful resources most relevant to your area of study. … Because I am making a libguide for use by year 4 students (9 and 10 year olds), all the resources on the pages are carefully chosen to be accessible and useful for them.

I have only made 4 libguides so far myself, but my secondary colleagues have made many more for use by their students. They are quite addictive to make, but can take many hours of work collating just the right resources. You can get stats as to how much use is being made of your libguide, which is great with the emphasis on evidence based practice.  

Please have a look at what I am talking about at http://libguides.caulfieldgs.vic.edu.au/Firstfleet

Aboriginal Dreamtime story app

Standard

Healesville High S – Dreamtime

Each year in year 4, the students study Aboriginal life, customs, language, stories, community – learning as much as they can about how indigenous people in Australia live. So I am always on the look-out for new resources to enrich their study. I was really pleased to come across this free app, because it is Australian made and written by students. It was created under the guidance of Aunty Joy Murphy, a Wurundjeri elder, nineteen years 7, 8 and 9 students from Healesville High School undertook an intensive two days of Dreamtime story telling, culminating in four dreamtime stories told through striking artwork and narrated in the students’ own voices. The app shares these stories.
