  • Describe several examples of the practical application of VR in a class setting;
  • Present a sample lesson plan that is linked to the Australian National Curriculum, and includes a small formative assessment;

  • Touch on some important considerations regarding how to meaningfully link this new resource with practice and pedagogy.

Chelsea’s hope is that you will come away from this presentation inspired to try new technological mediums. She also hopes that the knowledge you gain through this presentation will empower you to argue the case for VR in your own school.

 

VR is an incredibly powerful and versatile resource, and it is definitely time to get excited!

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand what VR is and how it relates to school education;
  • Describe several examples of how VR can be used in practice, in a classroom setting;
  • Argue the case for VR being brought into a school, by linking the potential benefits of the resource with current learning theory, research, and pedagogy.

How many times have you heard, ‘Just Google it!’ Google holds a large share of the search engine market. The word “Google” and the word “research” are often interchangeable in a students’ world.

 

In this webinar we will explore why Google is the dominant search engine, how Google works, where a search fits within the inquiry process & the essential skills that scaffold a search. I will share search secrets that allow students to be more specific with their search and the results this produces. If privacy issues are of concern, I will also address the need for having reliable alternative sites for your students.

 

This webinar will help you to:

  • initiate inquiry through effective search questions,
  • identify search tips that are relevant and helpful,
  • access resources to support ‘search’ at different age levels.
