Abstract

A small rural primary school has creatively adopted Learnscape as a significant focus to engage with its community. Within the school Learnscape works from the classroom to the playground and from there to the broader community to create a new place for learning. Learnscape allows cross curriculum boundaries to emerge and in the case of this school facilitates active participation with the school community, in ways that reengage culture, the community and curriculum. The experiences of this rural school as it promotes learning across the whole community through the exploration of Indigenous culture using Learnscape are documented.
