Hear our Views (2016-2019)
We have recently formed a research partnership with Behind the News to analyse, publish and broadcast children’s views on current news topics.
Behind the News is an ABC television news program designed for children and youth that has been broadcast into schools across Australia for the past 45 years. It has recently increased the interactive component of the program and has had a huge response from viewers (approximately 20,000 each time) when their views are sought on current issues.
Internal funding has been secured to help us to manage the large datasets and to link The University of Melbourne experts with the Behind the News team for specific news topics. In addition, the Royal Children’s Hospital have been invited to join the partnership. The Royal Children’s Hospital team conduct regular polls with parents on different topics and their work will provide the opportunity to compare parent and child views.
