Superclubsplus

Posted by jah63 on 3rd July 2008

I have discovered a vibrant, safe online learning environment for school children called Superclubsplus. This supervised utility is huge in the UK and Europe and is now gaining recognition in Australia. Currently it is free for schools to sign up their students for two years. The aim of Superclubsplus is “to enable children to communicate safely, work together creatively, learn from each other, have a voice…and a purposeful audience..” It allows students to create web pages, articles, join clubs, participate in forums, discuss current issues, create projects for school, earn rewards an the list goes on. This is all done in an environment that is consistently mediated by highly trained and dedicated staff. It is well worth while visiting Superclubsplus and taking the tour to see how it all works. Please check it out, comment and let us know what you think, or if your school is already registered tell us how it’s going.

Powerhouse Museum Images Available

Posted by brittgow on 29th June 2008

The Powerhouse Museum is the first museum in the world to release publicly-held historical photographs for access on Flickr, one of the largest online photo communities in the world. There may be some location and activity shots relevant to your work. For example, there are some interesting land clearing shots, histroical buildings, farming and agricultural images. Also with all these images there is a Creative Commons licence. This license means that you can republish this material for any non-commercial purpose as long as you give attribution back to the Powerhouse Museum as the creator and that you do not modify the work in any way.
