  • A comprehensive range of interactivities, concept explainer videos, weblinks and online content all embedded at the point of learning in learnON

  • Activities and teaching notes specifically addressing Life Skills outcomes
  • Question sets in print and online match one-to-one to allow different or flexible teaching approaches (with sample answers for every question)
  • Clear and well-scaffolded structure, content and language with explicit links to the NSW Australian Curriculum Geography Syllabus
  • Clear learning intentions and success criteria for every subtopic, so students understand what they need learn and can give feedback on their own sense of achievement
