Our NSW curriculum states that teachers, need to consider in their planning and programming, the incorporation of indigenous issues and themes across the curriculum. 'The incorporation of Aboriginal perspectives into classroom practice includes Aboriginal students through the important recognition of their identity, history and culture and also promotes reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians'.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture is a cross curriculum priority in the Australian Curriculum: 'Engaging students in learning about our Indigenous history and culture provides opportunities for students to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia'.
For schools with iPads there are a range of very useful Apps and iBooks that can provide rich material for students to immerse themselves in the language, culture, art and history of indigenous Australians. Many of them are free.
