Presentations on adolescent learning

Middle Years Conference 2005
Resilience, Engagement, Success

A NSW first, this conference has attracted teachers, school leaders, parents and
academics from across and beyond the state.

While we are aware of many of the issues facing our middle years students, increasingly we want to understand more about what drives and engages our 10 to 14 year olds.

Youth Research Centre - YRC

The YRC aims to:
- identify local, national and international research issues relevant to young people;
- conduct appropriate, relevant and useful research that addresses these issues;
- promote research agendas and policies which contribute to an understanding of the full range of life patterns of young people, and which support young people's capacity to exercise increased control over their lives;
- promote and encourage awareness of youth issues amongst research students and within departments and research centres of the University;
- facilitate communication between educators, researchers, policy makers and people working in the youth sector;
- facilitate national links and collaborative research on youth issues across different sectors, including education, health, youth work and juvenile justice; and
- strengthen international research links and scholarship in the area of youth policy.

This is a link to YRC's recent projects in youth research that are worth taking a quizz through ok.

Dust Echos

This mob here have turn five Indigenous stories into an animated TV series and website that appeals to kids of just about any age. ABC has done well to represent Indigenous Australia authentically, sensitively, and respectfully and for the whole thing to be visually and musically at the cutting edge.

They have included lesson plans, games, goodies, links and info about the creators.
