Do your students love reality TV shows? Check out this curriculum resource from the AEF where students learn about a variety of Indonesian cuisines through popular Indonesian TV cooking shows
The AEF is in the process of curating online materials to support teachers implementing the Australian Curriculum: Indonesian language http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/languages/indonesian/context-statement
As with all other learning areas we are in the process of creating online digital resource lists to support teachers.
We would like to invite you to share online resources and APPS that you use in your Indonesian language classroom. At this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10hXKRqqkg2ZyWL3qFO1b4X0YC9cQ_wQNko1xCmyWuyA/edit?usp=sharing you will be able to edit a google doc to add your suggestions.
These materials will then be collated into scoop.it lists (view example http://www.scoop.it/t/indonesia-by-asia-education-foundation) and shared via our Indonesian language page.
We look forward to your contributions.
