Teach Learn Share is a series of films on innovative programs in education. Commissioned by Education Services Australia and the Federal Education Department, the project saw Mighty Films travelling across three states visiting some very different schools.
Books in Homes: Nowa Nowa Primary School is a 27-student country school in eastern Victoria, but it feels more like an extended family. Nowa Nowa was the only school we visited that had a lizard on staff. Keep an eye out for him helping the kids with their reading.
YuMi Deadly Maths: The YuMi Deadly Maths program at Spinifex State College in the Queensland mining town of Mt Isa, keeps students in maths class by relating learning to the world around them. The class includes indigenous and non-indigenous kids and looks like a lot of fun! And no, Cottee's did not pay for the product placement.
Accelerated Literacy: Mayfield East Public School, one of the oldest primary schools in Newcastle, does accelerated literacy with a twist. It's a great little school with some big ideas and super-dedicated staff.
