School’s in at the National Library’s Digital Classroom.

Home to more than 10 million collection items, the National Library of Australia is the largest source of information in the world about Australia and its people. 

The Digital Classroom is aligned to the Australian Curriculum and supports a variety of classroom contexts and learning styles. It adopts an inquiry approach, allowing students to analyse sources, develop skills and draw their own conclusions about the Australian story.

The latest addition to the Digital Classroom is a module aligned with the Australian Curriculum: English for Year 4 students. Drawing on content developed for last year’s beautiful Story Time exhibition at the Library and the associated NLA Publishing title Story Time Stars, the resource uses the Library’s major formed collections, special collections material and other items as the basis for a practical exploration of children’s literature in the Year 4 classroom. Targeting the literature strand of the English learning area, teachers and students can use the module to examine writing for children from the colonial period through to the present day.

The National Library of Australia Digital Classroom has been made possible by generous funding from the Library's Patrons and supporters
