Scootle is the web portal for accessing ‘Learning Objects’ from the Learning Federation. You can browse these objects here: http://www.scootle.edu.au
What is a Learning Object?
Learning Objects are photos, films, games and websites that relate to areas of study. If you are doing a unit on gold, for example, you can search the Learning Federation for Learning Objects on gold and browse the resources that are available. Once you have found a resource that you want to use you can either set up a learning pathway for your students with that resource in it or download the resource and distribute it elsewhere.
What is the Learning Federation?
The Learning Federation is a collection of Learning Objects relating to the Australian Curriculum. It is provided free to all Australian Schools. We used to have the whole collection on CD ROM but, as it has now grown to thousands of resources, it is accessed through a website called Scootle.
How can I access this fantastic resource?
You can browse the resources at Scootle. If you would like to use one of the objects, you will need to set up and account. Staff at Aitken College can register for a Scootle account using this link:
