ACTF Education

Through its diverse content and curriculum-aligned teaching resources, the ACTF encourages children to explore and respond to stories representative of their own lives. We develop students’ critical viewing skills and their understanding of locally produced media, and build their content creation skills through our apps and eLearning events.

We support teachers Australia-wide in using ACTF materials through outreach to schools, regular news updates, and by providing professional learning.
