The content of the e-Learning objects (e-Lo's) is sourced from the Making Multicultural Australia website. It dovetails with the New South Wales school curriculum. Therefore they are ideal to incorporate into your programs and lessons:
During the planning of your unit of work, include e-Lo's as a stand alone lesson, or as part of a series of lessons or focus question.
How does the material presented in the e-Lo's relate to your students own experiences? Are there any aspects presented which provoke a strong response?
Use the e-Learning objects as a springboard for student research. For example, after viewing an e-Lo, direct students to explore the topic further on this website, or more broadly on the internet.
