Welsh Government Anti-Racist Virtual World
In collaboration with mXreality, and working with teams specialising in the subject from Cardiff and Vale College, the Welsh Government has developed an immersive, accessible and expansive 3D metaworld environment, comprising of five areas relating to different themes. They look forward to sharing their experiences, stories and anecdotes with you, and you are invited to engage in an immersive learning experience, which will enhance your understanding of the world. As you explore this world, you are asked to engage with the resources and reflect on their significance. This is an opportunity for you to learn about the cultures and traditions that make up part of our shared identity. The Metaworld consists of the following sections: Experiences The Metaworld of Experiences is situated on a street of representative semi-detached houses in Wales, with access to six houses (three on each side of the street). In each of the houses, you can learn more about the background and interests of the individuals who live there by watching the video playing on the TV and by clicking on some of the interactive items (identified by a three spot icon) in the living room. Immersive Studies The Immersive Studies Metaworld consists of a main lower level area and three upper level areas. The main area has a variety of items of geometrical interest because of their shapes and patterns, which show the connection between mathematics, science and nature. You can learn more about these items by clicking on them. A QR Code is also visible on a panel near some items, which can be scanned with your mobile phone's camera to view a 3D or Augmented Reality (AR) version of the item on your device. The higher level includes: Mathematics room – allows visitors to explore the importance and history of mathematical and geometrical numbers and shapes Hair and Beauty Room – allows visitors to familiarise themselves with the history and origins of hair and beauty Inventions Room – educates visitors about some significant inventions and early contributions to contemporary life World Timeline The World Timeline Metaworld consists of a main central area and four geographic regions, all of which you can access via a tunnel from the central area. Each tunnel displays information that presents the background, identity and image of a representative individual from that region. Each of the four regions (detailed below), comprises four time periods, allowing visitors to experience architecture, images, and representational information in relation to ancient times, medieval times, early modern times, and the world today. The four regions available in this Metaworld are: Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Northern Europe. As you move around the world timeline, in the central area and in each of the regions, interactive items you can click on link to videos that present useful additional information. QR Codes are also available in some of the regions, which can be scanned with your mobile phone's camera to view a 3D or Augmented Reality (AR) version of the item on your device.

More than just words: Communication in Health and Social Care
The aim of this resource is to introduce language awareness within health and social care to higher education students and professional practitioners. Its main objective is to build students' confidence in using their Welsh with patients and colleagues in the NHS. This resource has been developed for higher education students (level 4+) who are studying any health and care subject and intend to go on to pursue a career in the field. It is also suitable for professional practitioners and can be used as part of continual professional development. Except for Unit 1, each unit follows a specific patient pathway to show how different professions intertwine and have an impact on the experience of the patient or service user. You can work through the whole package in order or pick and choose specific units. The units can be taught in the classroom or studied independently. Most of the units present Welsh words, phrases and terminology to use with patients and staff. Although this vocabulary will be familiar to students who already speak Welsh, they are encouraged to consider how to share and teach the vocabulary to their peers. As a result, this content is suitable for all students, regardless of their Welsh ability.
Childcare Case Studies: Including Every Child
This resource has been prepared for learners studying for the Level 2 qualification Care, Play, Learning, and Child Development: Practice and Theory and Unit 001 Principles and Values of Care, Play, Learning and Child Development (ages 0-19). Some of the major principles behind Unit 001 are introduced through case studies, that is 4 stories of young children attending early childhood provision, such as nursery or a cylch meithrin. Here they are: Deio who is 3 years old and has epilepsy. Hanna who is 4 years old and has diabetes. Eshaal who is 3 years old and has allergies. Caio who is three and a half years old and has autism. The studies offer a view of the children through the lens of themes relevant to Deio, Hanna, Eshaal, and Caio – and to every child in fact. These themes – the big principles – are: Children's rights Inclusion Equality of opportunity The most important thing, of course, in any provision is to ensure that all children are safe, but children's conditions should not interfere with their right to have fun, to learn, to enjoy the company of other children, to adventure in the open air... These major principles are framed in legislation such as: the Children Act 1989 and 2004, the Equality Act 2010, the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. And there are policies and guidelines such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Welsh Government's Seven Core Aims. These will be a thread through the 4 case studies and they apply to Deio, Hanna, Eshaal, and Cai and yet, they are important to all children.
