Teach your Students Aboriginal Dreamtime

Dust Echoes is one of the most polished digital literacy sites I have seen for a while.  It contains a large selection of Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime Stories as animated cartoons with a range of interactive activities and lesson ideas to ensure these beautiful stories continue to be told to the world for the next fifty thousand years.

DustEchoes is a series of twelve beautifully animated dreamtime stories from Central Arnhem Land, telling stories of love, loyalty, duty to country and aboriginal custom and law.

It looks amazing containing loads of stylized Aboriginal Artwork.  The animation and dreamtime stories are beautifully narrated in simple language that caters for learners of all ages.  The stories are almost biblical in nature as the simple yet highly relevant messages being told through characters still relate to us all.
