Little Lunch App: A Teacher's Guide EDUCATION RESOURCE

ACTF's Little Lunch App in the Classroom

Everyone has a little lunch story to tell and in modelling the relatable, funny and moving on-screen tales of the TV series, the Little Lunch App paves the way for classrooms to tell and share theirs.



Resource Description

The Little Lunch: A Teacher's Guide resource provides Android tablet users with a PDF version of the Little Lunch: A Teachers Guide iOS multi-touch book and a PowerPoint of the included presentation.

The book is designed to support the integration of the Little Lunch App and original Little Lunch children’s television series into teaching and learning practices.

The book guides users through each stage of the app - highlighting the relevant curriculum links and providing additional screen-based activities that can be used with students to develop the skills and knowledge they require to be effective ‘little lunch’ storytellers.

The interactive book also includes a Little Lunch - Episode Guide – featuring the original series trailer and providing a synopsis for all 26 episodes, matched with relevant topic tags for appropriate classroom selection.

For iPad users, a multi-touch version of this book is available to download free from the Apple iBook Store

Cyber Safety

Use of the Little Lunch App in schools should be in accordance with each school's Cyber Safety policy.

Videos created using the app are by default saved locally to the device’s ‘Camera Roll’ and are not publically viewable. However, if schools with the necessary parent permissions wish to share student videos online it should be in accordance with the school's Cyber Safety policy.

We would recommend that any student videos that are shared online:

  • Do not identify students by name
  • Avoid identifiable school uniforms
