To make the resources you add to Scoilnet findable and meaningful to other users of Scoilnet, it’s really important that you describe your resource well but also that you indicate where you feel your resource ties into the curriculum. That’s why we ask that every resource be mapped to the curriculum. This happens at Step 2 of the ‘Add a Resource’ process and it’s mandatory. Otherwise, we run the risk of Scoilnet becoming an unruly “bucket” of resources that teachers find difficult to figure out.
Yes. During Step 1 of the ‘Add a Resource’ process after you have mapped your resource, you have the option to ‘Map to another subject/level’? Click this link and you will be provided with menus to map your resource to another subject/level.
If at all possible, we recommend you associate your resource with a subject. Think of the most relevant subject for your resource, even if it crosses several subjects. For example, let’s say you want to upload a link to information about the mind-mapping app Popplet. This is a very general tool but it could be associated with the subject English as it can be used effectively to map out the structure of an essay. Alternatively, it could be mapped to Science because teachers could use it to illustrate the steps in a science investigation – introduction, materials, methods, results, conclusion. Whatever the subject, once uploaded to Scoilnet information about Popplet is now “findable” so if a Business teacher was to search for “mind mapping”, a meaningful result would be returned to them even if it was associated with a different subject.
If there really is no subject you can associate your resource with, there is a category called "Not Subject Specific" that you can use. However, we don't want to overuse this category as the value of the Scoilnet repository is in linking resources to the curriculum.
