Fun way to learn culture

Alexander ScottPilbara News

A new education resource co-created by young people in the Pilbara has been launched to teach students about Aboriginal culture in an interactive way.

Neo-Learning was created with the help of young indigenous children from Roebourne to celebrate culture and support teachers and students with an energetic mode of online learning.

Neo-Learning creative learning producer April Phillips said the platform was a pilot project and part of the Telstra Foundation’s Tech4good program and Big hART.

Ms Phillips said the program offered fun cross-curricular learning in a series of three lessons.

“The lessons benefit primary-aged school students and teachers at a national level,” she said.

“Students are invited to celebrate the world famous future focused comic NEOMAD, Roebourne and digital literacies like digital drawing skills from where they are via our virtual classroom.”

Cultural adviser Michelle Adams said the project was a wonderful opportunity to use the digital media platform as a tool, a new way of learning that takes the world’s oldest living culture.
