Media Release - Australian school students lack basic understanding of where food and fibre comes from
PIEFA's independent digital learning initiative about food and fibre in Australian schools EOI
PIEFA is planning to develop and have available for school students across Australia a range of interactive units of learning. The recent period of home schooling has seen much innovation in remote learning and the creation of units of learning which can be undertaken independently. While the majority of teaching will return to the classroom, there will be an ongoing need for independent remote learning.
PIEFA believes there ought to be opportunities for Australian school students to learn about our food and fibre industries by remote learning. These units can in turn strengthen classroom teaching especially during teacher absences and in times of teacher shortages in certain circumstances. In the first instance, this will be for stages 1-3 of the Australian Curriculum or equivalent.
PIEFA is therefore seeking expressions of interest:
It is planned that all material will be accepted under Creative Commons copyright arrangements enabling its long term use by all students wherever they maybe.
Please respond to Luciano Mesiti outlining the following in your expression of interest:
PIEFA may not be able to enlist all the interest expressed but will endeavour to follow up on all responses.
