Edumap applied learning pedagogy and platform
Edumap is an online platform that teachers can use to quickly plan and deliver engaging high-quality programs and lessons in a number of learning areas.
Promoting deep and authentic learning through applied learning, schools can access a bank of quality teaching programs, resources and upload their own.
Lessons are searchable by topic, key learning area, stage and a number of other variables.
Currently in development
Edumap is being co-designed with teachers, academics and with representatives from the NSW Department of Education. Edumap was incubated by teachers in the 2018 Catalyst Lab Innovation Program.
Free for NSW public schools, we are intending to run Edumap on a pilot basis in 2020 – pending COVID-19 disruptions to normal scheduling for schools.
Edumap resources released early to help with students learning from home
A series of applied-learning teaching resources covering K – 6 has been uploaded for teachers with students learning at home or at school. They can be accessed from the learning opportunitites webpage on the department's learning from home pages.
High-quality, flexible and deeply engaging, these new lesson sequences provide a whole term’s worth of learning.
Everything is provided, and all teachers need to do is tweak the content to suit their context and their students’ needs. The topics, activities and KLAs covered are broad making these lessons deeply engaging for students, teachers and families alike.
The topics in this release are:
Early Stage 1 - all about students’ place in the world
Stage 1 – exploring the important role of bees
Stage 2 – looking at the birds in our environment
Stage 3 – how we humans impact the world around us.
