From ABC Splash: This Indigenous language map helps kids understand Australia

From ABC Splash: First Languages Australia recently launched Gambay, an interactive map of Australia’s first languages with accompanying videos and teacher notes. It’s a fantastic way to help kids develop an understanding of the land they live on. Australia is situated in one of the world’s linguistic hot spots; however, many Australians are not aware of the incredible linguistic diversity of Aboriginal Australia. To help overcome this situation First Languages Australia has collaborated with regional language centres to develop a map of Australian languages that reflects the names and groupings favoured by communities. Gambay* is a spectacular resource for students, parents and teachers, and includes teacher notes and curriculum links across subject areas (F-10).
