Queensland Museum Web Learning Resources

These learning resources are the result of collaboration between Education Queensland teachers who have been seconded to the Queensland Museum. The expertise of museum scientists and social history curators, web designers and on-line learning specialists has been drawn upon to produce these innovative resources. They include digital stories, interactive games, downloadable fact sheets and suggested learning strategies. The on-line resources can be used flexibly and creatively by teachers for the broad age group of students indicated. There are also hundreds of educational resource kits available to loan to schools in Queensland. Premium Kits, such as "Journey of Understanding' (see photo) are aligned with interactive web-activities.
