    Abstract

    The Living Archive of Aboriginal Languages is coming to life on the internet at www.cdu.edu.au/laal. As digitised books and other related resources in Aboriginal languages of the Northern Territory are uploaded to the database, its developers are working to configure ways in which the large number of resources in the archive can establish and invigorate connections between and within schools, researchers, and the traditional owners of Indigenous languages and cultures. We introduce the archive, its history and its possible futures, then explore some ways it might be used in classrooms around Australia. We focus upon the new Australian Curriculum’s Cross Curriculum Priority: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, and the Draft Framework for Aboriginal Languages and Torres Strait Islander Languages. We conclude with curriculum considerations outside of the purview of the Australian Curriculum.
