Breaking the barriers

Making it easier to teach media literacy

We know that teaching media literacy can be a challenge for many reasons, including its dispersion across curriculum structures, timetabling pressures, sensitive topics and changeable learning environments. The Lab is designed to help alleviate these barriers, with its dynamic learning platform and curriculum alignment-mapping. The learning environment is safe and secure, with clear flags for sensitive topics (and recommended outreach support). Teachers can deliver via blended or remote learning and module-based sessions are built to support flexible teacher use in a single or series of lessons.


“Media Literacy Lab is a high quality classroom resource that all Australian students should access to enhance their media literacy knowledge and skills. The platform’s interactive features will no doubt be engaging and the content has been very well conceived to prompt students to think critically and deeply about their media use.” – Associate Professor Michael Dezuanni, Digital Media Research Centre, Queensland University of Technology

“We are delighted to have been involved in this important project with the Alannah & Madeline Foundation because media literacy for parents, teachers and students is critical for participating fully in society and making decisions for the health of our democracy.” – Deborah Sulway, Learning Manager, Museum of Australian Democracy

“It is increasingly evident that young people need to be aware of the legitimacy of the information they are consuming across social and news platforms. Critical decisions that will impact on their futures depend on the ability to filter out the untruths and process the facts. Media Literacy Lab provides an engaging way for students to increase their ability to recognise fact from fake.” – Matthew Jorgensen, eLearning expert
