The sandstone country of Cape York hosts one of the richest bodies of rock art in the world. Spectacular galleries document the life-ways of generations of Aboriginal peoples.
This project brings together multidisciplinary researchers, cutting edge machine learning technology and traditional Aboriginal knowledge, to develop an AI capable of cataloguing these rock art motifs.
A key aspect of this project is to engage disenfranchised Aboriginal people via local cultural heritage in novel and innovative ways using a citizen science approach. In doing so it will capture the imagination of Aboriginal children in remote communities of Cape York and lead to improved education outcomes.
The project aims to use rock art to engage remote Aboriginal communities, especially children, in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) in order to develop and trial an innovative place-based, ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority) compliant curriculum package featuring cross-cultural learning.
PAST MEETS FUTURE
Together with Indigenous communities we explore the role of a techno-cultural interface for redressing educational disadvantage for Indigenous learners in mainstream classrooms. The projects aims to achieve this by developing educational tools, resources, for modules for Griffith pre-service teachers as a way to provide a clear and tangible demonstration of how communities, researchers and schools can successfully collaborate and learn from one another in a way that meaningfully informs and transforms educational pedagogies and practices.
