Content fundamentals for a TV show aimed at Indigenous children aged 3 to 6 : a literature review and discussion paper

David Norris, Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)


This literature review was undertaken to establish a foundation for the discussion of potential content (and the issues pertaining to the implementation of that content) for an educational television program aimed at Indigenous children aged 3 to 6. Specifically, the literature was read with an eye to identifying the most effective and relevant learning styles, teaching techniques and subject matters that will successfully engage, support and inform Indigenous children and their families in the transition from home/pre-school to school, and onwards into their early years of schooling.
