Technology Enriched Curriculum Program (TECP)

Worawa was one of fifteen schools in Victoria that participated in a student literacy and school engagement curriculum project throughout 2011-12.  The research report associated with the project entitled Learning in Motion: Connecting Schools and Knowledge for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children. Investigating iPads for learning and literacy describes the research and includes a broad  discussion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education.  Issues arising include:  That electronic tablet devices support literacy progress and engagement with schooling of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children when applications are culturally inclusive and respectful of local community culture and knowledge. This report is a preliminary study that provides a basis for ongoing research. Apart from general detail, schools have been de-identified regarding data. A copy of the report can be obtained by clicking here.

The Sapphires College Production

The Sapphires Project began as an idea late in 2012. Ms. Lois Peeler, the Executive Principal of Worawa decided it would be the next major Arts Project for the college. The power of the story was that it was a modern Indigenous story and it was part of the Principal’s life story. After creating a college version of the story, the plans were made and the process began. Click here to read more in our latest newsletter. Click here to view the Sapphires Production Video.
