Useful online resources for learning at home

Useful online resources to support home-based learning are now available via Sunshine Coast Council Libraries.

The organisation has pulled together the best home learning resources to help local parents and children during the coronavirus pandemic.

Due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic, Queensland students are learning from home for the first five weeks of Term 2.

Currently, schools are only open for children of essential workers.

The Queensland Premier has announced that preschoolers and students in Prep, Year 1, Year 11 and Year 12 will return to school on May 11.

It’s proposed students in other school years will return to the class on May 25, following a review of the eased restrictions.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said parents and caregivers within the community were tackling a new set of challenges.

“Finding the balance between work, and home-based learning with your children is a big adjustment for many people,” he said.

“So, Sunshine Coast Council Libraries have pulled together a wide range of materials and resources to support parents, caregivers and children through this next phase of the pandemic.”

The library website has two collections of resources – one for secondary students and another for primary students.

The resources help learning across a wide range of study areas including English, maths, science, digital technologies and the arts.

There are links to online language and STEM courses as well as documentaries, eBooks and useful newspaper articles.

To access the learning resources you just need to be a library member.
