The subject/KLA context for Vidfest may vary widely – it could be equally as beneficial as a presentation vehicle in Science, Media, English, Geography or any other content area – so the VELS identified in the following pages are only a beginning. Many more may be covered by the research for and development of the video content.
However, the clear learnings covered in a vidfest in any subject are laid out in three main areas:
- Literacy (both in the dimensions of core English and broader literacy, as identified in the National Curriculum)
- Interpersonal relationships and broader community participation
- ICT use and digital creativity
As such the VELS are drawn from:
Interpersonal Development, Civics and Citizenship, The Arts, Interdisciplinary Learning – and ICT, and English
In terms of the emerging Australian National Curriculum, Vidfest covers learnings from the Literacy strand of the English learning area, and 5 of the 7 General
