- About Deakin
The Deakin School News Network gives Year 9 and 10 students the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.
The project involves Deakin staff, local reporters and teachers in helping students develop their journalistic skills to become school reporters.
Reports can be about a school event, an issue that involves the school or something that students are interested in. As soon as you have a completed report, upload it online and send us the web address so we can link to it via our interactive map and others in the Network can see your latest news. Schools can submit as many reports as they want to throughout the year.
The Deakin School News Network project aims to interest young people in news and the world around them by giving them the opportunity to create their own news for a real audience, via a Deakin link up web page.
The Deakin School News Network project encourages students to develop their ability to work in teams, manage time, work independently, communicate effectively and think and evaluate their work critically.
Students also discover the legal and ethical responsibilities involved in broadcasting.
