ABC Launches New Destination for Australian Education

The ABC has announced the launch of ABC Education (abc.net.au/education), a one-stop destination for educational resources for Australian teachers, students and parents.

ABC Education will allow teachers, students and parents to have access to thousands of curriculum-matched videos, games, interactive tools and articles, and a new suite of content on the highly engaged English-language learning service, Learn English (abc.net.au/education/learn-english).

The launch will include the return of Australia’s much loved and only children’s news and current affairs program, Behind the News (BTN), with new host Amelia Moseley. Moseley has already worked on the program for four years as a reporter and presenter. Airing Tuesdays at 10.00AM on ABC ME, BTN will continue to deliver the week’s news to approximately one million primary school students around the country on air and online (abc.net.au/btn).

ABC Education will identify and partner with leading institutions, including the gallery, library and museum sector, to create innovative resources to inspire and educate students nationally.

Australia’s first Media Literacy Week, an initiative of ABC Education, will be held in September. The resources and activities created for this week will equip the audience to navigate the complex world of information that is on offer to them every day through many platforms and media outlets.

Audiences will also be able to access to educational material broadcast on ABC ME on weekdays from 10.00AM – 12.00PM during the school term. These programs, including titles such as Bistro Escargot and Fall in Love with Music, will also be available on ABC iview.

The launch of ABC Education reflects an important step in the way the ABC delivers content to audiences across Australia and demonstrates its commitment to educate Australians and deliver content of an educational nature.

Director of Television, David Anderson, said, “ABC Education not only delivers on the broadcaster’s responsibility to inform, educate and entertain but more importantly is an intuitive destination for teachers, students and parents who want high-quality, trusted education content in one place regardless of whether it is online, on television or on radio.”

Annabel Astbury, Head of ABC Education, said, “ABC Education will continue to offer this vast range of content that has been built up over the past five years through ABC Splash, as well as offering a new suite of exciting experiences that reflect changing classroom practices and help equip students with essential skills and knowledge to participate in and contribute to a global community.”
