Wikipedia is a free, multilingual encyclopedia project supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation.


I have undertaken a search of Wikipedia on Australian Animals and this is a list of resources I found that would support my teaching:

  • Fauna of Australia

  • List of exstinct animals of Australia

  • Animals of Australia

  • Common animals of Australia

  • Invasive species in Australia

Learners should have access to different learning resources so they can use the knowledge and skills they learn anywhere not just under the supervision and support of the teacher. One way to make these resources available to students is through Interactive Whiteboards. Students are more motivated to learn. I have witnessed time and again children reluctant to research a topic out of a book. They become bored and disengaged and start behaving badly. But put an item to research up on a big screen where the information they need as at their fingertips and watch them go. What do other elearners think?
