Video Transcript

There are a number of ways to search for resources and content on Positive Choices.

The simplest way is to use the search bar located at the top of every page.

Simply type in your search terms, for example, ‘cannabis’, press enter or click on the search icon and a list of results that closely match your search will load.

Have too many results? You can narrow them down by using the handy search filters available on the left hand column of the search results page.

For example, if you are looking for resources aimed at Year 9-10 students, click on ‘Year Level’, click the ‘Year 9-10’ option and then ‘Update’. You’ll see the results list narrow to a more manageable number on the right.

You can continue to add more filters, either from different filters such as ‘Resource Type’, or within the same filter category.

You can also remove any filters if you wish to expand your search. Simply click on a filter you’ve selected before, and then click ‘Update’.

If you wish to view only Australian content, click on the Aussie flag icon, and it will update accordingly.

Good luck, and happy searching.
