Abstract

This paper examines the use of specifically designed online teaching and learning centres that would benefit the educational disadvantage many Indigenous communities suffer. These centres would be in an area where Indigenous Peoples feel comfortable in accessing and where the education programs could be directed to suit the specific needs of the individual and community. This is will be shown through the inclusion of Aboriginal learning pedagogies, online technologies appropriate for that group and learning programs to suit the specific needs and desires of that community. These centres would help diminish the isolation, either in distance or social isolation, many Aboriginal communities suffer under. Also allowing educational access to all members of the community from 16 years (just post compulsory age)to mature age students. Issues of effective consultation in an Indigenous sense will be introduced.
