ABC educational resources
ABC TV Education, in collaboration with the NSW Department of Education, have planned a daily schedule of free to air educational programs.
These programs are supported by standalone resources that complement the ABC TV Education program.
All activities can be completed without access to the internet or a device and are suitable for lower primary, upper primary and secondary students.
Student booklets include activities designed by curriculum experts to meet educational outcomes and are based on a selection of ABC programs that are of high educational value. Activities address topics from a range of subjects including - English; mathematics; science and technology; geography; history; PDHPE and creative arts.
These optional resources do not replace teaching and learning programs provided by schools but may be used by teachers and parents/carers to supplement student learning. Teachers may select activities relevant to their teaching and learning program and modify to meet student needs.
Recording student responses
Students complete activities before, during and after viewing selected daily episodes. Where appropriate, space is provided in each booklet for students to record their responses. Students may require additional writing paper or a separate workbook for some tasks. Completed student booklets may be collected by teachers and used as evidence of learning.
How to access ABC TV Education programs
The selected daily episodes can be viewed via the ABC TV Education broadcast on ABC ME (Channel 23) from 10am-3pm weekdays. Each day commences with programs suitable for lower primary students followed by upper primary and then secondary. Programs are also available at ABC iview after the broadcast. A schedule of the selected episodes is included in each student booklet.
