The Australian Curriculum in Scootle
Scootle has made finding and using digital resources aligned to the Australian Curriculum easy for teachers.
Teachers can browse the Australian Curriculum at the content descriptions and elaborations levels.

Scootle learning paths
Teachers can use Scootle to create personalised 'learning paths' consisting of digital curriculum resources organised into a learning sequence targeted to individual students, student groups or for particular learning purposes.
Students can access a learning path anywhere and at any time, using a unique PIN, without the need for logins. A learning path can also be exported in a number of formats for external use by students as a worksheet, checklist of activities completed or as an assessment task.
Teachers can add learning paths to a searchable bank of resources that educators can access, select, repurpose and adapt for their own context. Teachers can browse learning paths, or search by keyword, title or year level.
