Online Learning Program
Take 3 and Cool Australia’s team of learning experts have designed 12 lesson plans including six beautifully produced short films that explore the key themes of connection, the ocean’s natural systems, human impacts on the oceans, solutions at individual, local and global levels.
The films are approx 6 min long and serve to illustrate Aboriginal cultural perspectives and the importance of Sustainable Development Goals to think locally and contribute globally.
All content aligns with the Australian school curriculum and supports the three cross-curriculum priorities as determined by the Australian Curriculum.
