RACT's RoadSafe, a road safety resource for Tasmanian Primary Schools.
RACT RoadSafe provides primary school teachers for grades 3 and 4 with a tool to better explore road safety with their students. Being a first for Tasmania, the online resource has a range of different learning tools that not only gives children an opportunity to further their road safety knowledge, but to also identify any knowledge gaps for individual students, classes, schools, regions, or even the whole state.
Available for use in Tasmanian Primary Schools, students are provided with a unique username and password that allows them to fully utilise 'RACT RoadSafe'. Students complete quizzes, watch videos and use third party games and resources to further their knowledge.
It is recommended that teachers work through the resource as a class exercise to stimulate group discussion, before encouraging students to attempt the exercises individually or in small groups. Teachers will have access to a separate 'dashboard' that provides an overview of their class's progress and allows them to identify areas that require some additional attention.
Road safety has direct links to the Australian curriculum. Within Health and Physical Education, an identified learning area is to ‘Identify and practise strategies to promote health, safety and wellbeing’.
RACT is now asking for interest from Tasmanian schools for 2018. Please visit Education Sessions to register your interest.
