Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali program is designed to support all Australian schools and early learning services in developing, implementing and managing Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs). The program consists of four key areas: Reconciliation Action Plans, Professional Learning, Curriculum Resources, and Awards.
Campaign Edge was tasked with defining and building this new platform for Reconciliation Australia. We faced a number of challenges in developing the Narragunnawali platform, including the need to create a platform that could be used by a wide range of stakeholders, including teachers, students, parents, and community members. We also needed to ensure that the platform was accessible and easy to use for all stakeholders, including those with disabilities. Finally, we needed to ensure that it was scalable to support future growth and one that stored many documents and uploads them securely.
The platform also includes a number of features that make it an effective tool for promoting reconciliation in education, such as a searchable database of teaching resources, including lesson plans, activities, and multimedia resources. A national awards program to recognise and celebrate schools and early learning services that are showing exceptional dedication to reconciliation.
The Narragunnawali platform has had a significant impact on reconciliation in education in Australia. There are over 10,400 schools and early learning services registered to develop a RAP on the platform. The platform is now used by over 80,000 users across Australia, and it has helped to improve the quality of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education in schools across the country.
