Announcement: AFTRS launches online resources for schools

From release: After serious consultation with teachers, AFTRS has launched MEDIA LAB, a free online resource for primary and secondary teachers, with practical, creative and tangible education experiences that can be used across the school curriculum, and from Kindy through to Year 10. 

The resources include lesson plans, student worksheets and video content to deliver learning on each topic, in either sequential or mix-and match format.  The initial resources target skills in filmmaking, documentary, podcasting, stop motion and screenwriting.

Outreach to primary and secondary students is an essential component of the AFTRS five-year plan, Future Vision 2021, launched last year, which established that a priority for the School is to reach a wider and more diverse audience, and develop the next generation of screen storytellers. 

As an online resource, this is a program available all across the country and concentrates on issues and examples which relate to Australian young people.
