Teaching ABCs via TV

With Victorian school students set to stay home for the remainder of Term 2, the state government’s ongoing partnership with the ABC is providing fresh curriculum-aligned content in support of remote and flexible learning.

The partnership sees the Victorian Government support the national broadcaster to enhance its educational programming to deliver additional curriculum-linked content to children of all ages.

The broadcast schedule for weeks 5 and 6 (11 May to 22 May 2020) includes content for multiple subjects including Maths, Science, English, Art, Geography, Design & Technology, Civics, History and Current Affairs.

Educational programming is broadcast every day between 10 am and 3 pm on ABC Me (Channel 23) and available online at ABC iView. Content for primary school students is broadcast in the morning, with the afternoons dedicated to seniors.

Minister for Education James Merlino said a range of activities connected to the programs has been added to the Victorian Government’s Learning from Home website.

“Partnering with ABC to provide learning materials via TV will give students a new way to learn and help keep them engaged as they learn from home.

“Schools, staff and teachers, and our students and families across Victoria have responded well to learning from home, despite the challenges it presents.

“This is a big change and it’s not always easy, but we’ll continue to support our students, teachers and schools every step of the way,” he said.
