Put culture @ the heart of education through LEARNING LANDS!
We know young people today encounter more cultural diversity than at any other point in history. Being equipped with tools to understand different perspectives and explore identity, is an essential part of learning. When we discover the culture of ‘the other’ we become more aware of the world we live in, resulting in increased empathy and cultural understanding.
Expand students capabilities through cultural learning:
Lake Mungo is home to the oldest human remains in Australia, and the oldest ritual burials in the world. Through the disciplines of science, geology and archaeology students are provided with a 'window to Australia's past.'
The Intercultural Citizenship Ambassador Program (ICAP) addresses ‘Intercultural Understanding’ as specified in the Australian Curriculum as a General Capability for all students, reflecting the growing diversity and accelerated cultural shifts now taking place in society. This 16-week sequential program was created to enable students to develop interpersonal skills and cultural empathy, becoming leaders in their community for intercultural understanding.
Sound Infusion is an online platform that enables students to create music compositions using digital samples of instruments from around the world. It promotes inquiry-based creative learning that allows students to combine music-based activities with study in areas of history, geography and humanities and social sciences within the Australian curriculum (ACARA). Our Lesson plans reflect the idea that music is at the centre of social experience and as well as intersecting with other aspects of human experience and knowledge.
Joko's World is a suite of digital learning tools which incorporate music, history, geography and culture. At the centre of the suite is a blue nightingale called Joko. Joko travels to different countries to show students musical instruments and cultural events.
Diversity Atlas is a data visualisation tool and a unique tool for measuring cultural diversity within groups of any size. It has an hierarchical structure, so in a school of multiple classes, you can measure diversity within different classes and the whole school at the same time and you will be able to compare diversity within your classes, during the time.
