Research shows that students can have greater success in their studies when the information they learn is connected to key concepts. The Oxford Big Ideas History series provides a framework for developing students’ historical knowledge, understanding and skills through inquiry questions and the use and interpretation of sources. The Australian Curriculum: History also identifies key inquiry questions or big ideas and core historical concepts and skills to be explored at each year level. Every chapter in the series mirrors this approach to ensure students develop deep learning of these big ideas, concepts and skills.
The obook is a cloud-based web-book available anywhere, anytime, on any device, navigated by topic or by ‘page view’. Assess is an indispensable online assessment tool, explicitly mapped to the Australian Curriculum that drives student progress through tailored instruction. As well as containing the student text and study tools, this obook offers a Virtual Laboratory containing specially-commissioned Australian-made lab experiment videos, drag & drops and other interactives. Using an obook, students can:
- access it anywhere, anytime (home, library, school, etc), on any platform (PC/Mac/iPad)
- see much more than the print book content—added wealth of interactive & rich content including interactive modules, videos, audio, and relevant websites
- navigate and search easily
- scale to suit any screen size, or increase/decrease font size
