EdNA (Education Network Australia)

EdNA provides an extensive directory service of recommended Internet sites for the primary, secondary and tertiary education sectors. It is the result of a collaboration of all State and Territory Education Departments and designed to provide schools with a one-stop gateway that will link them to quality Internet sites worldwide. Users can access collaborative projects, general reference sites, libraries, museums, disability resources, educational services, adult and community education programs, school information, Vocational Education and Training, and higher education web sites.

Internet Sites: State And Territory Education Services

Each Australian State and Territory maintains a web site/s, which outlines the Government Education Services provided in that State. In several States responsibility for Education is divided into two sections, compulsory and post-compulsory schooling. While a variety of approaches has been developed to disseminate information via the Internet, all of these sites are comprehensive and offer a wide range of information about services, current initiatives and curriculum development in Australian education. Local information for each school system can be found on these sites, plus school directories, policy documents, strategic plans, teacher resources, curriculum resources, links to mailing lists and Internet links for teachers and students to special programs, collaborative projects, examples of best practice and data on current research.
