Creating Curated Course Curriculum…for Apple, The Anzacs and The Australian Curriculum

Course-IconYes, a mouthful of a title, but check out that alliteration!

Over the school holiday break I was asked by Apple Australia to fly up to their headquarters in Sydney to create some course curriculum that they would later curate and promote on iTunes. The content in question centres around the 100th anniversary of the Anzac landing at Gallipoli.

My job was to create curriculum for Secondary School, while four other brilliant educators created Primary School courses.

These courses will be promoted by Apple shortly, along with a wealth of content around the Anzacs on iTunes.

I will also be flying up later in the year to run some workshops for Principals from around Australia on how teachers can benefit form creating and sharing this kind of content with their students (always nice to be talking to a Princpal than getting a talking from one…oh young Primary School Daniel, the mistakes you made…)

In the meantime, you can subscribe to the course now (It is currently being promoted by the DEECD). If you are a Year 9 teacher, this course covers an entire term of work using the Australian Curriculum and the World War 1 Depth Study.

Designed with the Australian Curriculum in mind, if you’re a Year 9 teacher, all the work is done!, One whole World War 1 unit ready, with a depth study and final assessment task (with multiple learning choices for students to cater for the diversity one finds in the classroom) […]
