Education Resources

Welcome to the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) Education Resources page. For educators wanting to incorporate use of the ALA in the classroom, there are some educational materials and resources that may assist you.

Classroom Activities

The ALA’s Classroom Activities align with the Australian Curriculum. Activities are available for all ages from Foundation through Year 12 and they can be easily amended to suit your needs and your local area.

User Guides

There are also step-by-step User Guides for using the ALA. These guides not only take you through the process of carrying out some of the functions of the ALA, but also link from the classroom activities so they can be easily adjusted to suit your local area.

A number of these user guides give instructions on how to use some of the functions of the ALA’s Spatial Portal. If you would like additional help using the Spatial Portal, or would like to see some case studies of the Spatial Portal in use, please click here.
