      • To engage the communities of Lockhart River and Yarrabah
      • To engage learners in literacy and numeracy resources by providing a familiar context and environment
      • To provide a resource which is customisable by any community within Australia
    • 15. The concept
      • Create a resource with default graphics and audio with links to suitable literacy/numeracy activities based on four locations – community council office, school, shop and the home – as well as a customisable photo album which can be populated with local pictures
      • Create a tool which allows communities to customise the resource with their own names, photographs and audio
    • 16. The resource
      • A collection of webpages, audio and flash with a default “look and feel”
      • Links to four identified locations:
          • Community Council (Office)
          • School (Classroom)
          • Home
          • Shop
      • A link to a community photo album
    • 17. The resource
      • Each location has an outside view which is customisable by the community
      • Clicking on the “Go Inside” button takes you inside the location – the inside views are drawn visuals of what that place might typically look like
      • Inside are clickable objects that load literacy and numeracy activities related to the object – eg. Clicking on a guitar will access activities around music
    • 18. The tool
      • When the learner has customised each location – choosing pictures and voices – they click on the “Make It Real” button which copies their own files into the resource, customising it for their own community
      • At any stage, the tool can be run to change any aspect of each customised location – names, pictures or voices
