Caretaking Aboriginal Australian Knowledge Online

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The influence of Aboriginal Australian’s Knowledges and Protocols on Australian culture has been profound and yet little acknowledged. To acknowledge the First Peoples of Australia and integrate their knowledge into the education system, we start with the First Peoples’ contribution to culture and learning since invasion in Australia. We then consider contributions now to educational technologies with a focus on collectivist knowledge sharing, oral teaching, narrative teaching, peer-to-peer sharing, and truth telling. In recognition of what modern non-Indigenous cultures have lost, we are appropriating technology to share the concepts around narrative learning and sustainable practice. This uses pattern matching skills that were initially developed for sharing knowledge across different environments between Aboriginal Australian communities and provides processes for memorizing and sharing diversity. Ways of emulating these
processes online is constructive in modern language reclamation, where the existing language information is scattered across many individuals, clans, and locations.
