    Clean Up Australia Day for Schools

    Clean Up Australia Day is an excellent opportunity to teach our students about environmental issues such as litter and pollution. From single-use plastic, to waterway pollution, right through to the dangers that humans' discarded rubbish pose to our flora and fauna, it's a great teachable experience with practical connections. Jill and I talk in this episode about the upcoming schools' Clean Up Australia Day on 28 February, and show you just how easy it is to get your school involved. You'll find plenty of practical resources on the Clean Up Australia Day website, and we have lots of interesting follow-up activities to consolidate learning at Teach Starter!

    Mr D's Stint as a Bingo Caller

    Teachers are often called upon to do lots of things that aren't on the job description. In particular, young, eager, bright-eyed and bushy tailed early career teachers! Mr D fell into a trap of accepting too many extra curricular activities, but he soon figured out how to manage them!

    Cyber Safety for School-Aged Kids

    Cyber Safety for School-Aged Kids

    Do you, as an educator, feel adequately equipped to teach your students about cyber safety? Do you feel comfortable in your duty to report any incidences of misconduct against students in the online space?


    The internet is an incredible resource, a wonderful utopia of seemingly endless knowledge. The keeper of interesting and diverse communities and ever-changing technologies. As teachers it’s both out privilege and responsibility to integrate the cyber world into the lives of our students. But just like in the physical world, there are dangers to be aware of and protect against.


    11 February is Safer Internet Day. On this day, millions of people around the world unite to raise awareness about online safety issues and inspire positive change. So it’s a great opportunity to revise and review your own online safety initiatives.
    The Office of the E-Safety Commissioner has plenty of ideas and resources to help improve the online safety of your students or young children and your community.


    Join me as I speak with Clint Bopping from the Australian Federal Police's Think U Know Program and Trent and Sam from the Cyber Safety Project for information you need to keep your students safe.
