Victorian Teachers – An invitation to hone your skills in the arts and have your say on ARTS:LIVE

As a Song Room supporter we value your opinion!

We are striving to create the best arts resources and to build your capacity to effectively deliver arts activities in the classroom.

Victorian based teachers are invited to join us on October 16 for an arts-based professional development opportunity and a chance to contribute to the work of The Song Room.

Your mission (should you choose to accept it!) is to evaluate the effectiveness of the digital learning platform ARTS:LIVE in the classroom. Once you have completed the professional development session, you will be required to put ‘practice into action’ by delivering a selection of activities in the classroom.

The Song Room will help to tailor the activities to your class and offer ongoing support during the delivery of the module.
