26TEN invites you to join us for a screening of the SBS Insight show, Why do so many Australians have poor literacy? After, there will be a Q&A session with people who appeared in the show and are making a difference, including popular educator, Dave Tout.
You can ask Dave about making maths easier to learn and 26TEN participants about Tasmania's unique approach to lifting literacy and numeracy in individuals, workplaces and communities.
26TEN is Tasmania's campaign for adult literacy and numeracy. Our name represents the 26 letters of the alphabet and ten digits we use for counting.
SBS Insight is a leading forum for debate and powerful first person stories.
Dave Tout is Manager, Vocational, Adult and Workplace Education Services and Senior Research Fellow in Numeracy and Mathematics at the Australian Council for Educational Research. He regularly visits Tasmania to show teachers and tutors how to make maths interesting and practical for their students.
