Aussie Kids & Media
In 2019, Squizers told us that they were worried about how the kids in their lives would grow into adults who had the skills to be critical consumers of media. So we launched Squiz Kids, a weekday news podcast for 8-12yos.
Since then we’ve won awards, been picked up in thousands of classrooms, and informed conversations about what’s happening in the world in thousands of Aussie homes.
And in February 2023, we surveyed parents, carers and teachers about their kids’ media consumption and how these skills are being developed at home and in the classroom.
In short, their concerns significantly outweigh their confidence that it’s being addressed. This report looks into this gap.
