Digital Resources Review

First Languages Australia continues to review a range of language resources. Together with language centres around the country we have collated a report on the benefits and challenges of using digital resources in your language work.

There are so many options for digital resources. So how do you choose?

Here are six steps to work through in helping decide:

1. What do you want to do with the resource?
2. What skills do people in your group have?
3. What resources do you know about already?
4. Talk with others about what they've used.
5. When you come across a resource that suits your group's skills and objectives, check that it will allow content to be easily imported and exported. This will allow you to use the content in other ways later.
6. If you can't find anything that would be suitable, then as a last resort make something new.

The title ‘Angkety map’ is from the Anmatyerr language, meaning ‘many stories’. You can pronounce it by saying ‘ang’ as in sung, ‘ke’ as in keep and ‘ty’ is a similar sound to ‘ch’ in church.
