What is Indigital Schools?

Indigital Schools is an Indigenous designed digital skills training program for primary and high schools students. It enables Indigenous and non-Indigenous kids to connect with and learn from Elders about cultural knowledge, history and language, while learning digital skills in cutting-edge technologies like augmented reality, animation and coding.

"Not only has the program ignited the students’ passion for science and technology, it has provided them with a deeper understanding of Aboriginal language and culture and introduced them to the soft skills that are fundamental to learning in the 21st century."

Steven Worrall, Managing Director, Microsoft Australia

How it works

The Indigital Schools program consists of five curriculum-linked workshops delivered in class by teachers. Indigenous Elders share stories, language and cultural knowledge either in person or via our online video library.

Students bring what they learn to life by creating animated characters and stories using Paint 3D, Minecraft and Blender applications. Their creations are uploaded into the Indigital platform and shared with friends and family via animated 3D augmented reality on the Indigital application.

What is included in the Indigital Schools Program?

Yearly class licence subscriptions for up to 30 students include unlimited access to:

  • The Indigital Schools platform and application where students can create and share their characters and stories
  • Elder approved and Australian Syllabus linked curriculum, lesson plans and assessments
  • Video library of Indigenous Elders sharing cultural knowledge, history and language
  • Our self-paced online educator training platform for in-class delivery support.

Collaboration
Teachers and Elders can work together to teach Indigenous cultural knowledge, history and language and digital skills to the next generation.

Stories
Humans are hardwired to learn and share through storytelling. Kids build their skills to create and share stories with their peers, family and community.

Pathways
Indigenous children see themselves in a digital future when it’s provided to them through a cultural lens.

Confidence
Teachers have the confidence to teach Aboriginal knowledge, history and language in culturally appropriate ways through our Elder approved curriculum and lesson plans which link to Australian Syllabus.

Working Together
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island kids can share and celebrate their culture and identity, while, non-Indigenous children build their understanding of and engagement with Indigenous Australian culture.

Problem Solving
Tomorrow’s leaders are sitting in our classrooms today. Kids learn problem solving and digital skills required for a rapidly changing future.
