In a world of ever-changing algorithms and new screen technologies emerging, the demand to keep up with screen and digital literacy is at the forefront for many schools.

At ACMI, we provide programs to strengthen the screen, media and digital literacies needed in our screen-based world. Our education programs assist young people to ‘read’, understand, and analyse the moving image and how meaning is created via our screens.

ACMI is a very inspiring place and just entering the building gives me great ideas for my narratives.

ACMI was a very safe and comfortable place...I learnt a lot of cool things I thought were impossible and I would definitely go again.

Our education program

We are a world leader in moving image education and strengthen screen, media and digital literacies in our communities. We nurture the next generation of screen creatives to upskill in moving image technology and prepare for the jobs of their future.

Support ACMI to continue our education programs that assist young people to ‘read’, understand, and analyse the moving image and how meaning is created via our screens. As Australia’s museum of screen culture we are in the best position to work together with schools to promote screen content and digital skills to young people.

We offer schools tailored programming, where we work directly with teachers to further students’ skills and creativity.

Programs include:

  • Student workshops in our Gandel Digital Future Labs
  • Student talks and lectures
  • Visits to our new centrepiece exhibition, The Story of the Moving Image
  • A suite of online resources to access from the classroom or home.
