Disrupt, persist, invent: Australians in an ever-changing world learning resource (Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5, Stage 6)
This flexible learning resource enables students to discover and engage with videos and records from National Archives’ touring exhibition: Disrupt, persist, invent: Australians in an ever-changing world
Disrupt, persist, invent: Australians in an ever-changing world is a National Archives touring exhibition that tells stories of social change in Australia – including our progress in women’s rights, marriage equality, science and technology.
We’ve developed a flexible new learning resource that can be used to explore records and videos from the exhibition in the comfort of your home or classroom.
The learning resource includes a series of curriculum-aligned activity sheets for Middle Years (years 6-9) and Secondary (years 10-12) students. When you sign up for this event you will receive links to all activity sheets, facilitator instructions, and a page where all the relevant videos and records are hosted in one user-friendly location.

Learning Intentions & Success Criteria
We are learning to look closely at archival records to see what they can tell us about the history of social change in Australia.
I will be able to identify the origin, context and purpose of a range of records held by National Archives.
I will read primary and secondary information to discover the stories told by these records.
I will think, talk, write and draw about a range of social issues related to these records. I will share my perspective on these issues and listen to the perspectives of others.
