Not sure how many of you have explored #ABCSplash
but if you haven't then you are really missing out on something special. As the About Us says:
"This website offers a new, world-class education experience for Australian students, and is packed with thousands of videos, audio clips, games and interactive tools. All resources are free to watch and play at home and in school and guaranteed to spark discussion and promote curiosity."

Importantly all of the content is mapped against the Australian Curriculum. One such offering is the Choose Your Own Statistics page. Drawing from a range of 'real' data drawn from government sources related to topics as diverse as Life Expectancy, Homelessness and Access to Information, users can compare data over time, interact with the data and even download it for offline use. The Teachers page offers an extensive list of suggestions on how the data can be used in the classroom.
