Deakin SEA.Ed

– an ocean literacy initiative –


We have created our own ocean literacy resources for school education! These resources are focussed on primary school education and are linked to the v9.0 Australian Curriculum and the 7 Ocean Literacy Principles. The resources are inquiry-based units targeted to Foundation – Year 6. We have had teachers and students trial our resource where we evaluated the impact on improving ocean literacy. We have received promising feedback from participating schools and will share outputs on the website soon!
