One Place, Many Stories is a free on-line resource designed for teachers and middle to upper primary students as a way of engaging children in the history of Victoria. It is a rich, cross curricular resource, which can be incorporated into the classroom in a variety of learning contexts.

The One Place, Many Stories website allows students and teachers to layer historical maps and plans over Google maps to investigate changes to an area over time. In addition to this, students can pin their own stories (using a simple template on the website) to the map, including images and photographs. These stories can be based on their own research, both historical and contemporary. One Place, Many Stories can be used more broadly to look at places outside Victoria, as well as around the world.


Student and teacher help pages, as well as curriculum connections to AusVELs and classroom ideas on how to use One Place Many Stories can be found at: http://prov.vic.gov.au/education/oneplace.

One Place, Many Stories was funded though the DEECD FUSE Content Grants program and created in partnership between the History Council of Victoria and Public Record Office Victoria.
