ABC extending curriculum-linked content to support learning from home

Topics : COVID-19

91796688_3080909425307892_130745753747324928_o.jpgFrom Tuesday 14 April, the ABC is extending its educational program on ABC ME to support children and caregivers at home, the broadcaster announced last week. 

The final schedule will be released Wednesday 8 April.

The ABC is currently working with state and territory education departments and other education providers to deliver curriculum-linked content to children of all ages from 10am to 3pm each weekday. 

The line-up will move from primary school content in the morning to secondary school content in the afternoon, featuring programs such as Ecomaths, ScienceXplosion, Numberblocks and English on the Go. 

This will also include an original teacher-led lesson mini-series which will be broadcast on both ABC ME and ABC Education and a ramp-up of educational content offered by Behind The News.  

Early childhood education 

Kindergarteners will not miss out with trusted content on ABC Kids, ABC Kids Listen and the ABC Early Education website, which comprises shows and podcasts across the five curriculum areas: family, community and culture; sustainability and nature; creativity and self-expression; STEM; and, health and wellbeing.

It also includes reflective journal blog posts for educators. 

Online portal: ABC Education 

Online portal, ABC Education, will provide additional support with access to over 4000 free videos, interactive resources and games mapped to the Australian curriculum.

Teachers and parents can sign up to their weekly newsletter to receive access to resources, competitions, news and events.
