The Song Room is building on its reputation as Australia’s leading arts education provider by launching the new-look ARTS:LIVE digital music and arts education hub in January 2017.
ARTS:LIVE is an award-winning major initiative aimed at achieving sustainable music and arts learning in school communities.
Originally launched in 2013, ARTS:LIVE has grown to become Australia’s gold standard for online arts education resources, being used by over 1 million students in more than 70% of Australian schools.
Now we take the education hub even further with new developments designed specifically to meet the needs of educators. Based on teacher feedback, we have a host of new features designed to improve functionality and user experience. Our courses are now accompanied by richer, more flexible content to ensure that the 300 hours of teaching content is simple to use, with effective, curriculum-aligned learning outcomes for students.
Regardless of your existing skills and knowledge, ARTS:LIVE provides extensive cross-curricular resources and content, with sequential, easy to follow instructions to bring the arts to life in your classroom.
- Over 300 hours of curriculum-aligned teaching content across Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts, from Early Years to Year 10.
- Resource content developed in collaboration with arts expert partners, such as Heide Museum of Modern Art, Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM), AusDance, APRA/AMCOS and the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association (NAISDA), with new resources being launched each term.
- The upgraded platform now includes a range of additional resources that target core skills in teaching the arts, as well as the provision of customised professional development support options to ensure teachers continue to develop their capacity to deliver quality programs now and into the future.
- Curriculum aligned educational content in a range of ‘ready to use’ resources, including teacher notes and student activity sheets.
