Shout out to Story Box Library

I know that Terms 1-2, 2020 will remain pretty unforgettable to teachers and students for sometime. Whilst COVID-19 challenged educational teaching and learning in new ways, some of the tools and online platforms that were used for the period of remote teaching have now become more mainstream in classrooms.

One particular online platform that I think is especially exciting and innovative is the Story Box Library. “Story Box Library is a subscription based educational website, created for children to view stories by local authors and illustrators, being read aloud by fantastic, predominantly Australian and New Zealand, storytellers.”

In using this resource to access quality Australian stories, I am particularly impressed with the professionalism and the level of smooth transitions between the story and the storyteller. This would be a wonderful educational resource that is available to schools. As well as this, the focus on diversity and representation is excellent.

I love for example, being able to search by ‘publisher’ which enables me to locate and view First Nations stories and content.

Such a great resource and tool, so thankful for it’s support during COVID, and so thankful for its presence beyond!
