    The goal of The Le@rning Federation Schools Online Curriculum Content Initiative is to ensure students from Australia and New Zealand maximise the educational opportunities made possible by online technology. The Le@rning Federation has adopted a ‘learning objects model’ approach to the development of interactive multimedia computer-based resources. The potential economic advantage of learning objects is that they can be disaggregated and resequenced for different educational purposes.

    The Le@rning Federation was initially commissioned to develop, over five years, learning objects in the following priority curriculum areas:

    • Science from K–P to year 6 and for years 9–10
    • Mathematics and numeracy from K–P to year 9
    • Literacy for students at risk in years 5–8
    • Studies of Australia from K–P to year 10
    • Innovation, enterprise and creativity from K–P to year 10
    • Languages other than English (Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian) from K–P to year 10.
