In Away with Words students become authors and publishers writing an illustrated story in which an aspect of nature is central. The aspect of nature may be drawn from familiar western science or other world views such as an Indigenous resource based view of the world. This implementation plan provides a range of ideas collected from several great teachers whose students have produced high quality work with the help of these strategies.

Clean the Beach together This activity suggests families or schools become involved in a community cleanup and learn about the significance of the local sea country at the same time. People also add ranger or scientific knowledge to their sea country knowledge to become more aware of the multiple ways to find out about your sea country. People also collect data about rubbish collected on the beach and add it to a national database about the patterns of rubbish found on Australian Beaches. This information is used to prosecute and name offenders. We support Tangaroa Blue a non-profit group involved in Beach Cleanups in Queensland and elsewhere.

An article with Therese Brandt about dealing with cybersafety issues in schools, without the usual drastic "block it" strategies. The article calls for some common sense to be had by systems and schools. School Based Habits for Online Safety .pdf School Based Habits for Online Safety .pdf
This presentation will unpack some data developed in the QSITE community and through a study with James Cook University which suggest that ICT services being delivered across school networks are not cognizant of curriculum and pedagogical rationales. AISQ_Keynote_networks.pdf AISQ_Keynote_networks.pdf
Even though my recent experience is with Indigenous adults in remote communities, I have reflections about using technology in schools that may be useful (so I think). I particularly want to speak to teachers of Indigenous children and to teachers in Indigenous community schools to suggest that schools and training usual approaches to using ICT are not necessary or desirable in Indigenous communities. There are better ways if we teach less and let people learn more though practical personal ICT projects. QSITE article w pics - reducedd.pdf QSITE article w pics - reducedd.pdf
In Australia as elsewhere in the world, there is a view that adult training, especially about technology, requires pages of step-by-step instructions and boring exercises about all the features of software in some weird order totally unrelated to practical tasks. The presumptions about this model of learning are flawed. It can never work for second and third language speakers, for people with little text literacy, or those who do not relate to linear lockstep thinking (which includes most of us). In spite of all the flaws of this training model, we still see training institutions pump out thousands of software courses for adults and young pre-vocational workers, even for teachers who will then impose this model of learning on their students. In our experience, step by step software skills training certainly does not work for Indigenous children or adults.

We went deep into the Gibson Desert, WA last year and thought we might share some insider info on ways to enjoy the desert that you may not find in the tourist brochure. That’s what we love about the Wanderer magazine; living journeys through the words of CMCA members. We have spent many months working in the Ngaannyatjarra Lands for NG Media, an Indigenous media company that provides radio across “The Lands”, generates and produces visual content and provides public Internet access to people in 13 remote Indigenous communities. This has given us the opportunity to travel along the Great Central Road from Uluru to Laverton several times and we have camped many weekends in some wonderful spots.

The result is a analytic piecemeal approach of bits of skills, which make it difficult to map actual practice. We have opportunity in this project to trial dimensions and comment upon them.

This ICT review tool looks at three ways ICT can be used in a course: concept development, online delivery and assessment, explicit discussion of why particular ICT pedagogy was chosen. The review sheet is best used by first looking at the optimal position on each vertical column or dimension then plotting your estimate of where the course currently sits on the dimensions. This highlights areas that may be positively changed in a review of the course. The document contains instructions for its use. ICT Course Review Sheet.doc ICT Course Review Sheet.doc
