SBS Learn Website for Schools

The SBS Learn website was launched last night at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) in Sydney. SBS provides teachers guides and materials for students to accompany their documentaries. These are now being collected at SBS Learn for ease of access by schools.  ACP is currently showing photos from school students as part of their "School Selfie" project on photography. For the students there is "How to sharpen your selfie skills" and for teachers a 30 pages "Teacher notes: School Selfie".

Also available are Go Back To Where You Came FromThe BoatFirst ContactWhat's the Catch, and  Once Upon A Time In Cabramatta.

This is a useful initiative, but SBS needs to provide an index to the materials, based on the Australian curriculum topics and student levels. Also it would be useful to have the materials available in low resolution versions for regional students on low bandwidth Internet connections and with the website formatted to be more mobile-friendly.
