Goodbye from LandLearn
As the environment and circumstances change, so does the structure within which we work. The former DPI education program known as LandLearn no longer exists, however some aspects of this well known and respected program are being incorporated into a new DPI Rural Education program.
The Rural Education program is evolving and we are exploring new ways to interact with education providers, meaning this will be our final hardcopy newsletter and we will communicate with you via electronic media / means in the future.
Our website, incorporating the existing resources, is still available via www.landlearn.net.au. You can download free activities or purchase one of the seven resources available on cd. The activities are “hands on”, engaging and require little or no special equipment. Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) links and background knowledge are included to assist teachers in the classroom.
LandLearn has received excellent in-kind and financial support from a variety of different organisations and individuals including Landcare, industry bodies, CERES, DEECD, education organisations and programs, Catchment Management Authorities, tertiary institutions, individual teachers, and the staff of Department of Primary Industries, Parks Victoria and the Department of Sustainability and Environment and their predecessors. Our sincere thanks for that support over the years.
