Schools Digital Resources Project

VACL is pleased to announce the commencement of a new project to produce innovative digital audio-visual resources to support language reclamation and revitalisation activities in Victorian schools and communities.

The project will be undertaken in partnership with the Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated (VAEAI), Traditional Owner Groups and three schools currently teaching Aboriginal Languages as part of a Victorian Schools pilot.

Thornbury Primary School in Melbourne and Heywood & District Secondary College in the state’s south-west are currently involved in a two year Aboriginal languages pilot program which commenced in 2012. Thornbury students have been learning Woiwurrung, the language of the Wurundjeri People, while in Heywood students have been learning the Gunditjmara Languages. Swan Hill Primary School commenced a Wemba Wemba School Languages Program in 2014.

This project seeks to produce quality digital media resources to support these programs and improve language learning outcomes, working with students and Traditional Owner Groups to develop appropriate visual, written and audio content.

Digital Language Project Officer
