What’s happening with screen content in Australia's digitally enabled classrooms?
This forum will connect teachers, producers, broadcasters, researchers and others interested in screen content in Australian education to discuss this question. The forum will report the results of Screen Content in Australian Education: Digital Promise and Pitfalls, one of the most in‑depth studies of the distribution and use of screen media in education ever conducted in Australia.

How important is interactive content and teacher engagement in production?
A detailed case study of The Boat explores these issues.

How can suppliers get their content seen in schools and how can teachers find good content?
Key players outline their educational strategies and visions.

What are the best ways forward with teaching support materials?
Producers, policy makers and distributors offer experiences and alternatives.
