Australia and the Olympic Games

Learners can explore Australia's involvement at the Olympic Games during significant historical events over the last 100 years.

This new online digital resource can be offered in a range of e-learning environments including tablets and interactive whiteboard lessons. It allows self paced and student centred learning and is linked to the new national curriculum.

The resource is comprised of six modules, which delve into the historical context of the Olympic Games as well as Australia's participation and performance. There is multimedia, transcripts, weblinks and references which form a rich learning experience for teachers, students and Olympic enthusiasts.

The Teacher Guides provide an overview of the content, activities and resources for each module. The ICT Ideas Guide offers practical support for activities which develop technology skills, encourage interactive learning and support the needs of individual learners.
