Online teaching and learning resources to support mathematics and phonics

For: 

The Australian Government will invest $9.5 million to strengthen the capacity of teachers across Australia to teach mathematics and phonics through freely available, nationally coordinated, high quality professional learning and resources.

This initiative will deliver:

Mathematics Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for teachers of Foundation to Year 10 students, provide supporting face-to-face professional learning and a repository of teaching and learning resources through an online Mathematics Hub. It aims to inspire Australian school students to learn mathematics and equip them to become our future mathematical and technological innovators.

The MOOC initiative will build on the successful Australian Government funded, combined delivery model currently in use for the Digital Technologies MOOCs and Digital Technologies Hub to build improvements in Mathematics teacher capability across Australia.

Online learning and teaching resources to support phonics education for the early years of school. The aim is to provide teachers with ready access to resources that will assist in delivering quality phonics education.

The free, nationally available teaching resources will build on existing resources to support teachers plan and deliver literacy classes that include a focus on phonics.
