Event description

Description

We will run a tour for participants to view the historically and culturally significant collection of Carrolup artworks and discuss our associated education program. We had a number of successful immersive excursions in 2017, which allow students to learn from the Carrolup story. These activities give students the opportunity to engage with real historical material including letter, articles, 1940s school work, oral histories, photographs, video and much more.

Learning Areas: HASS, Art, English, Media, Health, Civics and Society Relevant for both Primary and Secondary.

I will be presenting on my recent experience using Skype in the classroom and running global virtual Field Trips over the past 6months.

Possible topics for presenters:

- Teaching Aboriginal Perspectives
- Aboriginal Standards Framework and Ways of Learning
- Cross-Curriculum Projects: Deep learning
- Teaching Culture/History through Art
- Galleries as a teaching resource
- Healing and Reconciliation in schools

Participants will be encourage to reflect on their own teaching practice and engage in brainstorming activities to be used in their own classrooms. Participants will receive a certificate of professional development. We will screen the new documentary 'Heart Coming Home' at the conclusion of the evening for those who wish to stay and view it.

Information regarding a funding opportunity available for schools to complete projects associated with topics of Reconciliation and Aboriginal Histories & Cultures will be provided.
