Are you an avid follower of Maine WATERs, or maybe it’s one of those resources on your ‘to-do’ list to check out. In the last few weeks, Marine WATERs has been undergoing some changes and we’re extremely proud of the result that went live this week! The web address is still the same – http://marinewaters.fish.wa.gov.au, so have a look at today.
On the homepage, you’ll notice a few things have moved around. The general keyword search has moved to the left hand column with the other search filters. We’ve almost finished linking the Australian Curriculum content descriptor codes to each of the lesson plans too so very soon you’ll be able to search for resources simply by inputting the code specific to the outcomes for the year level you teach … watch this space for updates on this search feature. The blog now takes centre stage on the homepage, and we now have a feedback function on the bottom left hand corner. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the functionality of the site.
One of the biggest improvements (we think) is found when you select one of the learning modules. The resource types found in that module are listed across the top, and if you select one, e.g. presentations, you’ll be taken to the presentations found in that module. You’ll also notice a fish hovering off to the right hand side of the page. Click on it at any point and you’ll return to the top of that page.
We hope you find Marine WATERs even easier to use now and remember we’d love to hear your feedback!
