What is StarTime?

StarTime believes creativity makes the world a better place. That’s why we've committed to delivering world-class creative learning to kids, teachers and organisations, right across Australia — both online and face-to-face. We’ve innovated immensely in the webinar space. Firstly, for kids, launching live-streamed holiday workshops that blew the other online lessons out of the water.

We took the best parts of Zoom, Nickelodeon, Netflix and Twitch to create the future of children’s entertainment and education. The sessions were deemed a huge success, not just by the kids, but by media and businesses as well. StarTime featured on Sky News, in the Australian Financial Review, and we’re working together with the NAB, Ernst and Young and other high profile organisations.

Now, they’re doing the same for teachers, launching an online PD series that delivers an incredible learning experience using an interactive, hands on approach. StarTime’s Visual Literacy series will inspire your teaching toolkit.

Why Visual Literacy is taking centre stage

Each Visual Literacy Masterclass contributes to NESA registered PD, addressing 2.6.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

2.6.2 — Use effective teaching strategies to integrate ICT into learning and teaching programs to make selected content relevant and meaningful.

6.2.2 — Participate in learning to update knowledge and practice targeted to professional needs and school and/or system priorities.

StarTime’s PD courses will give you the foundation to incorporate filmmaking, green-screen and visual literacy skills effectively into the mandatory use of digital technologies whilst adhering to a modern learning curriculum. Not only that, but the opportunities visual literacy presents in classrooms is immense. It can change the dynamic of every lesson, energise any subject.

Inspiring you and your students

StarTime LiVE recognises the power of confidence. It’s something they build into their sessions. The skills you’ll learn will help develop creativity, collaboration and communication amongst your students — but also give you the confidence to inspire future skills in others.

  • Kids learn to work collaboratively in a creative setting
  • Display highly developed communication skills
  • Encourages innovation when portraying themes and issues
  • Drives critical thinking
