The overall aim of this project is to enhance the education of young children in remote communities through purposeful, appropriate use of information and communications technology (ICT). The intention is to build stronger connections between school and community through the targeted implementation of a custom-built Filemaker Pro database on the Apple iPad tablet computer that will enable students to use visual, artistic and storytelling activities to engage with and record cultural knowledge and artefacts within their local community whilst also building crucial skills in ICT and literacy.
