    Where are the answers for the quiz questions? Without having to spend time watching the video it would be very helpful to have the answers? My students can peer mark then by just viewing an 'answer page'

      Hi Laura, At the end of the quiz, click ‘Check your Answers’ and then ‘Review Answers’. As the students go through the answers, if one was wrong the answer should appear below the options in a small blue font. If you are doing the quiz on a board as part of a class exercise make sure you actually make a selection though for the correct answer to appear.

        • any stories regarding kids with ASD (autism) would be great, especially a positve aspect to this common learning difficulty.

          I teach some cool kids with ASD. They would love to be more celebrated for the great young people they are.

            We sure do! Check out this search result which has a couple of stories relating to ASD:
            http://search.abc.net.au/search/search.cgi?query=autism&collection=btn_meta
            but in particular our story from the other week App Creator: http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4513462.htm
            and I’m not sure if any of your students have Aspergers but we have a great story from Declan on that: http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4085956.htm
            Thanks for watching.

                  Thanks for your feedback. We do like to report on what Aussie kids are doing yes – recent stories like Banjo Girl and Karate Kid are examples of that. However we only have 5 stories a week and so we need to include reports that help explain the biggest news stories to everyone.
                  We do have a Rookie Reporter section now though that can be used to upload stories that you report on! Maybe if you want to have a go at making your own report you could give that a try? http://www.abc.net.au/btn/rookie.htm
                  Also, ABC Open do a lot of reports of things that are happening around the country – you may find some interesting stories in your local area.
                  https://open.abc.net.au/
                  Competitions are a good idea but we don’t have the funding to support that activity.

                • scripts

                  Is it possible that BTN reporters (and the education advisor!) be instructed on how to use apostrophes correctly? There are mistakes every week, especially by Nathan and Sarah, in the transcript which even my English students pick up. E.g. in the 1920's, both of Australia's possible PM’s.

                    • Please get somebody to carefully edit the spelling!

                      I've just done a quick scan of the site and easily picked up two spelling errors - zoomorphic calligraphy is "cleaver" (clever) and the surfing scientist has a trick or two up his sleave (sleeve). Surely the ABC's children's media website would have one or two people who can spell involved in the creation and design, especially on the page for teachers? Or is it going to be on the test tomorrow?

                        Why can't we download higher quality videos. JAGGIES look terrible

                          We finally updated our video player over the term break and so now have the ability to add different quality versions. We now have slightly higher resolution versions of the video, just click the HD symbol when the video is playing. (note that it’s not an option everywhere)

                        • Expand Behind BTN resources about production to include some more filming tips, interview tips etc from the experts

                          This resource about your production process is already excellent, but expanding it even further with a weekly tech tip for filming, recording, interviewing, scripting... would be brilliant. Students value tips from the experts.

                            • To work with the Austrdlian Curriculum and provide episodes that co-inside with our yr 8 and 9 SOSE classes or English classes.

                              I am a yr 8/9 Eng / Sose teacher- have programs / episodes to correlate with the units we do in term 1 right around Australia- e.g. Teens in the News (eng) and The Industrial Revolution ( sose/ history). This would be so absolutely fantastic if it could be done. A list of appropriate episodes under each unit of study.

                                Our Teacher Resources all have AC links included in the first page. Unfortunately, We haven’t done anything on Industrial Revolution. Also SOSE won’t be part of the National Curriculum.
                                The best way to find relevant stories on BTN is to search our stories based on keywords. You may find more relevant content on Splash which does list content within curriculum learning areas. http://splash.abc.net.au/

                                  Just to let you know that we have had sooo many problems with BTN this term with the Adobe Flash. What happened is that when the ABC upgraded to Adobe Flash 11.2 Holmesglen didn't have this on our system. So, no picture, no class, until the Adobe Flash 11.2 upgrade was individually installed.

                                      Hello, thanks for your feedback. We believe the quizzes we have each episode are pretty much the same thing! Sometimes the presenter will also add a bit more info about the answer too. On our ABC3 shows we also have a “did you know” segment most times.
                                      Thanks for watching!

                                        • It would be great to see some awareness created on Joseph Kony and the world wide campaign for 2012 in a BTN story.

                                          There is a campaign to bring down one of the biggest international criminals in 2012 and all that is needed to accomplish it is awareness. A BTN story would help explain this situation to kids as it has started popping up on social media and news.
