Digital resources

Digital learning and teaching resources from the department embed future focused learning and include advice for teachers to use them in the classroom. They address NSW syllabus outcomes, harness new and emerging technologies and comply with government accessibility and quality standards.

Anzac resources commemorate the centenary of World War I and can be used in a range of key learning areas and Stages.

Teach and learn resources have been developed in collaboration with the department’s IT partners. They are designed to guide teachers through the most educationally significant sections of partner websites.

Our video resource collection provides students and teachers with a scaffolded approach to exploring a topic using video. All resources address NSW syllabus outcomes.

NSW ecosystems on show highlights fifteen natural ecosystems found in New South Wales. Each resource has been designed for students investigating ecosystem types in NSW, providing a greater understanding of their location, function, how they are impacted by human activity and how schools and communities can work to protect them.

The learning tools selector is a web application that supports teachers to make informed decisions about the technologies they use with their students. Learning tools are represented as coloured tiles and arranged into categories that reflect modern teaching that align to the ICT Capability. The selector has been developed by the department's Learning Design and Development team.
