Sunshine Online includes a great selection of highly engaging texts by different authors. Most of the titles are animated to bring the story to life and offer narration and text highlighting to support thereader. Each e-book is followed by up to three interactive activities.
The non-fiction e-books feature high-interest and age-appropriate topics. The texts are multimodal and help students make meaning through the use of embedded video clips, animations, audio, images and text. Many of the texts are ideal for inquiry-based learning and support STEAM education.
Sunshine Online includes fun, interactive activities that explore a wide range of skills. As the program develops, many of the activities become more open-ended, allowing students to demonstrate their understanding of the text in creative ways.
The Staffroom section provides teaching support resources. These include teaching notes, activity sheets, curriculum-linking documents, Skill Overview Charts etc.
