Australia’s Defining Moments Digital Classroom is the National Museum of Australia’s curriculum-linked, online teaching and learning resource for primary and secondary schools. At its heart is a timeline of defining moments in Australian history designed to spark the interest of young learners.

Produced with the generous support of Gandel Philanthropy, Australia’s Defining Moments Digital Classroom is a dedicated Australian Curriculum Humanities and Social Sciences resource. It aims to enliven the teaching and learning of History, Geography and Civics and Citizenship through a wide range of student-centred resources.

Australia’s Defining Moments Digital Classroom follows the success of the Museum's Defining Moments in Australian History website and outreach project.
