School on TV starting Term 2 on ABC ME
ABC will extend its educational programming on ABC ME to support students and caregivers at home, from 10am to 3pm each weekday during Term 2, 2020. The expanded schedule moves from blocks of primary school content in the mornings through to secondary school content in the afternoons.
The ABC is working with state and territory education departments and other education providers to deliver additional curriculum-linked content to children of all ages.
From Tuesday 14 April 2020 – with students having started Term 2 or readying to do so, depending on their location – the ABC will extend its educational programming on ABC ME to support children and caregivers at home, from 10am to 3pm each weekday. The expanded schedule will feature programs such as Ecomaths, ScienceXplosion, Numberblocks and English on the Go.
The ABC will offer additional online support through its portal ABC Education, with access to more than 4000 free videos, interactive resources and games mapped to the Australian curriculum – across subjects such as English, maths, science, history, geography, media Literacy, financial literacy and the arts and technologies, including STEM.
Behind The News is also ramping up its vital education offering to make sure parents and teachers have plenty of trusted, quality video content mapped to the Australian curriculum, including its daily and weekly programs Newsbreak and BTN Classroom.
BTN will expand its network of Rookie Reporters delivering news, views and opinions via mobile video, so that kids who are working remotely or in isolation will still have a voice in our news. Parents will also be able to access BTN’s teaching resources and lesson plans in the “Teachers” section of the BTN website.
ABC iview’s enhanced collection of carefully curated education content features informative and engaging programs across multiple subject areas, including BTN, The Storybuilding Tool Kit, This Place, Citizen Code and Teenage Boss.
Content for Pre-schoolers can be found on ABC Kids, ABC Kids listen and the ABC Early Education website, which includes Reflective Journal blog posts for educators and shows and podcasts across the five curriculum areas of family, community and culture, sustainability and nature, creativity and self-expression, STEM and health and wellbeing.
Special collections of learning content and family activities are also available on the newly enhanced ABC Kids app and ABC Kids Community Facebook page, which engages and inspires ongoing conversations with families, carers and educators.
