ACARA calls for contributions for a more inclusive Australian Curriculum

no

In an announcement yesterday, The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) called for education professionals to contribute to making the Australian Curriculum more inclusive for students with a disability.

Applications to the Australian Curriculum Equity and Diversity Advisory Group are encouraged from people who have expertise in at least one priority equity and diversity area. These areas include students with a disability and students with English as an additional language or dialect.

The group is a welcome opportunity for professionals who have experience working with students with a disability, such as Itinerant Teachers of the Deaf (ITODs), to provide expert input.

Read Captions Across America Day

no

Today is Read Captions Across America day, an annual campaign to promote the use of captions particularly for children, as video-based media can be a great instrument in nurturing reading skills when captions are turned on.

Hosted by the National Education Association (NEA) in partnership with the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP), the campaign aims to bring the use of captions to the forefront of the minds of teachers and parents around the country, encouraging them to turn captions on.
