Education Resources for a Better World

Hey, we're Cool.org!

But you might know us as Cool Australia (we've been creating resources for Aussie teachers for over 13 years). While our name has changed, our mission hasn't. Our real-world, curriculum-aligned teaching resources equip educators to teach the stuff that matters, creating better outcomes for humanity.

How does it work?

It's completely free to create a Cool.org account, and with this you can grab a whole lot of great free lesson plans, activities and professional learning courses. You also have the option to upgrade to a Cool+ subscription. For less than $3 per week you get unlimited access to our full catalogue of resources.

The Cool.org Hope Framework

We understands our responsibility when tackling sensitive and potentially distressing topics. We have created the Cool.org Hope Framework to use when discussing challenging issues to ensure psychological safety for teachers and students.

The Cool.org Act Framework

The Cool.org Act Framework supports strategies for enabling action at various levels and configurations. You can grab an approach to take action quickly or work towards taking action at a greater scale. Be sure to consider the age and ability of your learners, the suitability of your resources, and the broader networks that can help.
