In this case, “ABC” stands for “Australian Broadcasting Corporation”, and “ABC Splash” is an educational website which offers video, audio, and games to support the Australian curriculum. However, this Beta site is open to anyone, and it has some fun activities that could easily be integrated into English-speaking classrooms around the world. It is designed for students in primary and secondary schools, and includes: Maths, Science, English, and History. One of the interactives that I enjoyed exploring was “World Wonders TV Show: Earthquake” in which the user organizes facts about earthquakes to create a television script.
It looks like this site will be providing a lot of resources for teachers in the future, and it also includes an informative blog. “ABC Splash” shows a lot of great potential.
