In this online professional development session recorded on 30 June 2016, Andrea Soanes and Barbara Ryan from the Science Learning Hub (SLH) explore the new-look SLH website with a primary school focus.

Learn how to navigate around the new-look website to find the resources you need quickly. Andrea and Barbara give tips on how to get the most from the SLH, including the benefits of registering, favouriting articles and activities, media and video sections, investigations and experiments and articles that link across the curriculum.

This is great. A great help and such a time saver having these ready-made units to guide us.

​See the video of this professional development session (we recommend downloading the video) and also links to download the PowerPoint presentation.

You might also be interested in our PD session aimed at secondary teachers.

This does look as though the site is easier to use. Can’t wait to start navigating and sharing with other teachers.

Nature of science

The nature of science guides teachers in science to build the skills required by scientists at all levels, from the basics of observation to the more complex skills of collaboration, investigating and decision making within science. It is important within the classroom environment that students have opportunities to build and practise these skills in order for them to become confident science-literate citizens.
