The ALA’s Classroom Activities align with the Australian Curriculum. Activities are available for all ages from Kindergarten through Year 12 and they can be easily amended to suit your needs and your local area.
There are also step-by-step User Guides for using the ALA. These guides not only take you through the process of carrying out some of the functions of the ALA, but also link from the classroom activities so they can be easily adjusted to suit your local area.
A number of these user guides give instructions on how to use some of the functions of the ALA’s Spatial Portal. If you would like additional help using the Spatial Portal, or would like to see some case studies of the Spatial Portal in use, you can browse Spatial Portal help articles.
