Locating and curating resources to support STEM learning in my school is an area that the library staff and I
collaboratively work on together.
We aim to use a multi-modal approach to source, locate then promote print and digital resources to support
teachers in their curriculum planning and teaching.
Here is a curated list of our current list of STEM related resources:
If you are looking for great tools to support your students as the use online resource to support their research & inquiry investigations, here are some of my go to sites which I use in both my Library and Digital Literacy classes.
These are suitable if you wish to use alternatives to Google or Bing (particularly with students in the early years of schooling).
If you know of others, please contact me to update this list.
Happy researching and inquiring.
Welcome to a new school year for my fellow Australian educators and happy 2021 to educators around the world.
I am about to embark on my 32nd year of teaching. Wow. Even that is a BIG number in my eyes. I never would have anticipated being in education THIS LONG and still have passion and determination to make a difference to the adults of the future.
This year I have new sense of FREEDOM, this time over the past 5 years I have been filled with dread thinking about how I will EVER complete my M. Ed. I never thought I would see the light of summer again and be study FREE. Well for a number of personal reasons and the current world climate, things have been rather subdued these holidays. I have actually just spent time pausing, reflecting and resting after a mammoth 2020. Not looking back, but just reflecting on what worked well (WWW) and what could be even better if… (EBI) in 2021 for the numerous roles I undertake in my work and in my personal life.
Wishing you all the best of health to tackle another year in this ever changing world of education.
Be well and stay well is my wish for you all.
Culturally Diverse Literature – Professional Learning Series: Part 2 Choosing Culturally Diverse Literature
Stories are powerful. They shape the way we think about the world, ourselves and each other. The stories we choose to present to students at school, as teachers and librarians, profoundly affect how students perceive the world and their place in it. We want to help you choose culturally diverse resources that reflect students’ diverse lives, promote inclusion, challenge stereotypes, confront racism and ultimately strengthen our multicultural society.
