How does using TV support teaching and learning?
Using carefully chosen TV content in the classroom is standard contemporary teaching practice. There are many reasons why this is the case.
- If used well, TV content can grab students’ attention and provide a hook into a particular subject or topic.
- It can be an innovative way to explain a complex idea and help visual learners to grasp concepts more easily.
- Using TV clips can help start meaningful conversations about topics and establish real-world connections beyond the classroom.
How can I use TV content in my lessons?
TV shows, films, current news clips, documentaries, and historical and political dramas all have their place in the classroom. Here are some easy ways you can incorporate them into your lessons:
- As a ‘trailer’ or topic intro
- To complement novel study and bring a book to life
- To study or discuss particular themes
- To bring a subject like History or Science alive through dramatisation of events
- To immerse students in language learning
How can I best use the ATOM study guides?

These are developed by a team of curriculum experts, linking video content to the Australian Curriculum and recommended year levels and subject areas.
