Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a valuable resource for history teaching and learning. Its summary of events is particularly useful for two content descriptions in the year 5 curriculum. The first is about the reasons (economic, political and social) for the establishment of British colonies in Australia after 1800, and the second is about why people migrated to Australia from Europe.
  • The links in the timeline provide students with opportunities to find out more about significant individuals and groups including Edward Gibbon Wakefield, Robert Torrens, Robert Gouger and the South Australia Company. The link to the Letters Patent document is particularly useful; not only is the actual document shown but its significance, both then and now, is described and explained.
  • Understanding the historical concept of chronology is important in history teaching and learning, and this timeline is a good online example of the concept in practice. The chronological sequence allows the relationship between various initiatives to be more clearly understood. The links show the value of the online format in providing further information and illustrations.
