Indigenous-led digital platform changing in-class learning ahead of national curriculum

How a small Indigenous community in the Pilbara is changing the way our kids learn, and is set to shape the delivery of a national curriculum through the new digital platform, NEO-Learning.

Stories of inspiration and wins are few at the moment, so one that wells from a remote community in the Pilbara – Ieramagadu (Roebourne) – and is about First Nations-led change for a new generation of digital learning, is especially welcomed.

NEO-Learning is a social impact model developed by Big hART through the Telstra Foundation’s Tech4Good program, with over 1,000 children taking part in the early piloting of the initiative.
