Innovation in online technology has opened up unprecedented opportunity to address the gap in music and arts skills in schools. 21st Century learning offers a means for every child to learn in and through the arts.
That’s why we developed ARTS:LIVE, a digital classroom for the arts.
Originally launched in 2013, this award-winning platform 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.
The Song Room worked in partnership with leading arts organisations and arts education specialists to produce over 300 hours of teaching content across the art forms of music, media arts, dance, drama and visual arts, with new content added each term.
This major initiative aims to achieve sustainable music and arts learning in school communities. Through its innovative learning platform, ARTS:LIVE enables students and teachers to deliver in-depth, curriculum-aligned, classroom-ready interactive learning from anywhere in the world, regardless of their existing skills or knowledge.
- 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, Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA) and the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association (NAISDA).
- 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.
