Today the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has released a revamped Australian Curriculum website.
“The Australian Curriculum website is a popular resource, but it has been around for a few years in its current form. We have listened to user feedback and we hope users will like the fresh look and a new ‘filter’ option on the home page, which makes content easier to find,” said ACARA CEO, Robert Randall.
ACARA is responsible for the Australian Curriculum, a curriculum for all schools across the nation. The Australian Curriculum ensures that every child, wherever they live or whichever school they attend, has access to the same world-class curriculum.
The new website features: an updated look and feel, content that is easier to find through a new ‘filter’ option on the homepage, and greater prominence of parent information and student diversity information on the home page.
There is no change to the actual curriculum, just how it is presented. The website will retain its current address and all links to curriculum and resources will be maintained through automatic redirects.
Users of the older version (7.5) of the Australian Curriculum will still be available to access this by going to a link on the homepage. Version 7.5 of the Australian Curriculum will only be available until the end of 2017.
