We are working with education departments and the Independent and Catholic education sectors across Australia to offer a range of free Virtual Classrooms. Using webinar learning, Virtual Classrooms allow an Outreach trainer to reach many schools, even in remote areas.
Presentations are usually about 30–40 minutes in length, allow student participation under teacher guidance and include recommended complementary resources.
Our Virtual Classrooms are live video presentations where an on-camera trainer talks through a PowerPoint slide presentation which includes interactive polls. A brief questions and answer session may be held when time permits.
Students commonly participate in their classroom using a smart board. In some cases, an independent chat application (such as TodaysMeet) is provided for students to further interact directly through their laptop or tablet.
We work with the host education department to deliver the presentation on their preferred video conference platform. We have experience with a variety of platforms including Blackboard Collaborate, GoToWebinar, Saba and Adobe Connect. Connection details will be provided to the teacher upon registration.
To provide the best possible audience experience, it is recommended that prior to participating in a Virtual Classroom, teachers liaise with their technical team to ensure that the local internet connection and equipment is able to comfortably support the event.
We would value your feedback in our 1 minute survey.
Audience: Years 4, 5 and 6 students.
