Experiment for the info revolved T.L.

Posted by arlekeno on April 7, 2009

 PLEASE NOTE, This is an experiment, and I do not have permission yet from all the websites to link ( only some   EDIT: I now have permission from Project Gutenberg, USA and Australia to use their sights! Ask and it shall be given unto you re-edit. AND from the HUXLEY sight… the B.O.S. sight is already linked to schools I guess, so that is everyone.). This is from the NSW board of studies prescribed reading list for the HSC 2009/2012.

 

I have gone through public domain websites such as project gutenberg and found all the texts from the NSW HSC list that are available for free online.

I have then replaced the books ISBN number in the B.O.S. document with the link.

 

My aim would be to attach a document such as this to my school library webpage, so that students doing the HSC could download all their texts in either RTF, PDF or MP3 format to their new K.Rudd supplied Netbooks.

 

This would mean that any English lesson where a student had their netbook, they would also have their text.

I believe this is relvant to the role of the teacher librarian in supplying equal ( and cheap ) access to texts for study, relevant in our roles of information managers and copywrite experts and a good way to use the new resources being made available to Australian students.

 

I intend to do this for not just HSC, but all of High school English texts ( in public domain) and possibly for ancient history.

    This is fascinating; I’d love to do something similar for my students: I admit I tend to search for and print resources at the moment but I am very keen on setting up a library website.

    I came here mainly because of your comment about getting in touch with other Bloggers: “Is there a complete list of all blogs?”

    I have not yet discovered how to subscribe to anything; when I find someone I put it in my csu page under ‘links’ – don’t worry: no names unless folk are OK with that. I picked wordpress because it was first on the list: more fool me 😉

    Here are two free online sites with content relevant to HSC texts that you may or may not know about. Love what you are trying to do and would aspire to similar. I see it as core role of TL too. It’s inspiring to see this developing.
