Asia EdNet


Gerard Broadfoot

Catholic Education Office, Melbourne, Australia

This session draws on professional development workshop materials developed by the Asia Education Foundation and Curriculum Corporation as part of the National Asian Languages and Studies in Australian Schools (NALSAS) strategy. The workshop will introduce and explore electronic facilities for studies of Asia and familiarise participants with the potential of the Asia EdNet initiative to support the skill development required by educators in order to resource the curriculum online. In the time available, participants will have an opportunity to interact with three of the five modules available in the online tutorial. These will cover aspects such as what's out there and how do you find it; but is it any good - evaluating internet sources; studies of Asia curriculum and the Internet.
