The site has been developed for Australian teachers and students to promote diversity. There is no doubt that in an ever-increasing globally connected world, we all need to be able to interact with people of diverse cultures and beliefs. Difference Differently provides curriculum resources across English, History, Geography and Civics and is aligned to the Australian Curriculum, supported by the Department of Education and Training and supports the objectives of the Melbourne Declaration. Resources include personal stories, media reports, contextual information, online forums, quizzes, interactive activities and reflection tasks. Activities are interesting, stimulating and challenging.
Modules are available for both primary and secondary students across subjects mentioned above and include topics such as Thinking Globally, Defining Identities, Who Can be Australian? Mapping Diversity, Many voices. You can view a demo of the site here. To get full access to resources, teachers need to register themselves and their students. The site is set up so that only teachers have access to their enrolled students. It includes teacher resources and teaching strategies. Teachers can also clock up PD hours by taking the Teacher Diversity Program offered.
A fabulous resource, spread the word and promote diversity in Australia.
