General Capabilities

Introduction to General Capabilities

General Capabilities, a key dimension of the Australian Curriculum, are addressed explicitly in the content of the learning areas. They play a significant role in realising the goals set out in the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008) – that all young people in Australia should be supported to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.

Audits have been created in order to assist schools in mapping the General Capabilities in their curriculum, co-curriculum and extra-curriculum. An audit code has been included which will enable you to indicate whether or not changes to your current school curriculum documents are required and to highlight resources and professional learning implications.

Resources - General

Curriculum and Leadership Journal
The Curriculum & Leadership Journal iPad version is now available via iTunes.The journal is published by Education Services Australia (ESA) as an online service for the Australian and New Zealand school education communities, with the support of ACARA and the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL).

ABC SPLASH
ABC Splash is packed with hundreds of videos, audios clips and interactives for use in the classroom. It's a comprehensive interactive site featuring high quality Australian content linked to the Australian Curriculum developed in partnership with Education Services Australia. Innovation in the classroom was key at ABC Splash Live: Digital Ideas for the Classroom, a professional teacher development event, held in Sydney and Melbourne in August, showcasing sessions on future-focused and innovative online content, live news events and interactive games for students. Please access this link to view the sessions: http://splash.abc.net.au/home?_cldee=ZmFycmFsbGpAYWlzLnNhLmVkdS5hdQ%3d%3d

South Australia
The ‘Australian Curriculum Leaders’ Learning Resource’ is an exciting online suite of resources that supports the implementation of the Australian Curriculum by bringing together the ‘what’ of the Curriculum and ’how’ it should be delivered based on the SA Teaching for Effective Learning framework (TfEL).

Queensland
The Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) has developed Queensland’s Purposeful Integration project that focuses on strategies for integrating curriculum across learning areas and subjects in primary and middle school settings. The approach involves integrating learning areas/ subjects by means of an overarching question and a series of focus questions derived from common or connected concepts. The use of questions is designed to guide student inquiry as well to inform teachers’ scaffolding and instruction. The resources provided are excellent.
