ELH SchoolTech is recognised as the definitive event in the local educational calendar and is a unique opportunity for schools to share experiences and benchmark their performance against others.
The presentation team lead participants through the development of a unit of learning based on digital learning technologies and the Australian Curriculum. Central to the discussion was the decision making process regarding which learning technologies will assist students to achieve the required learning outcome. For the purpose of the session the learning technology which was presented was the virtual world, Skoolaborate. Participants had the opportunity to explore the possibilities for teaching and learning within this exciting online environment. Participants learned how the use of avatars can increase learner confidence and they gained ‘hands-on’ experience in creating an avatar themselves.
