Media and news literacies:

How the ABC provides free student resources critical for global citizens

Presenter: Annabel Astbury 

Annabel Astbury is Head of Education at the ABC, where she is responsible for delivering the strategy and content for ABC Education. She works with an amazing team of content makers, producers and technologists to make ABC Education one of the country’s leading education resource portals.

She presented at our ASLA conference earlier this year.


The way we understand and decipher news and information presented to us continues to change as new technologies, techniques and the way news and information is made and distributed also change, almost on a daily basis. As such, the way we teach media and news literacies must also change, but also come to the forefront of everything that we teach, regardless of discipline or curriculum contest. Being media-literate is as essential as being literate in subject- specific disciplines.

In 2018, ABC Education ran Australia’s first 'Media Literacy Week'. In this webinar, Annabel Astbury, Head of Education at the ABC, will share the team’s learning about news and media literacy content for schools, where students and teachers are at in terms of engaging with the news and media literacy and why the media and news literacy tools created for ABC Education are not only essential for students, but for everyone in society.

Annabel will also highlight how your teachers and students can get involved in a range of activities and initiatives being hosted by ABC Education and for the inaugural International Media Literacy Week being held in 2019.

Teaching Level: K-12 with a stronger emphasis on yr 4 and up.

This Webinar addresses the AITSL Teaching Standards 2.5.2, 2.6.2, 3.3.2, 3.4.2 and 6.2.2

Completing 'Media and news literacies: How the ABC provides free student resources critical for global citizens' will contribute 1 hour of NESA registered PD addressing Standards 2.5.2, 2.6.2, 3.3.2, 3.4.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
