The Symposium Kids, Creoles and Classrooms was co-convened by the NT ATESOL, the CRC-Remote Economic Participation - Remote Education Systems Project, Charles Darwin University and The University of Melbourne. The Northern Territory Department of Education and Catholic Education NT also contributed. The two day professional learning and networking event took place 7-8th April, 2014 at Charles Darwin University. It was attended by 90 participants.Video footage of all the Keynote presentations are now available for financial members of ATESOL NT to access.

Members can view Day 1 and Day 2 Plenary sessions and Questions for the Panel where valuable dialogue exploring new horizons of modern Kriols and Aboriginal Englishes are explored, along with implications for educational success.

Highlights are the personal stories from our colleagues, as they share their 'growing up Bi-Dialectal / bilingual expereinces' and the insightful research projects in language growth in Australia being undertaken and shared.

ATESOL NT warmly thanks all presenters, speakers and audience members for their permission to film them speaking and listening.
