Disrupt, persist, invent: Australians in an ever-changing world learning resource (Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5, Stage 6)

On Demand

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.
