Livestreaming celebrities for students in lockdown

The #EducationLIVE content series has returned to NSW schools, in an effort to keep home learning engaging for students.

ABC’s Dr Karl, AFL clubs the Swans and the Giants, Taronga Zoo and maths guru Eddie Woo will help make learning from home more engaging for students across Greater Sydney this week, through daily video livestreams.

Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning Sarah Mitchell said #EducationLIVE, the popular daily content series, was making a cameo return thanks to the generously donated time of the presenters.

“During the previous lockdown, the daily livestreams to NSW Public Schools connected students with expert presenters across the fields of music, art, food, gardening, technology and sport,” Mitchell said.

“We’re bringing back our daily livestreams … so students can hear from some of our favourite educators including Eddie Woo, Taronga Zoo and players from NSW AFL clubs, the Giants and the Swans.

“The livestreams will support the hard work of teachers and parents as they help our students learn at home for the first week.”

#EducationLIVE starts every day from Tuesday at 10 am with Taronga animal of the day followed by a special address from a celebrity educator.

GWS Giants Captain Stephen Coniglio said the Giants are pleased to do their part to add some fun and movement to NSW school students who are learning from home.

“Our thoughts are with everyone during this difficult time,” Coniglio said.

Woo said he was delighted to be back on #EducationLIVE and hoped that lots of people would tune in.

“Our live streams are a unique and exciting way to support parents, students and teachers with additional resources to help with learning from home,” he said.
