Are we there yet? A blended approach to learning, anywhere, anytime

Enver Malik has come from Australia to discuss the way this could be done and give an example.

He suggests that this could broaden a curriculum that is narrowed by being rural (or other reason), linking with experts and for PD. This could be an interesting avenue for WGC.

However, limited by bandwidth. Distant locations are limited by equipment too.

Possibilities include video conferencing and web conferencing (using Centra), and asynchronous tools (Moodle) & Digital repository (SCOOTLE).

Centra enables whiteboard collaboration, recording/playback functionality. The focus here is on collaboration, VC is for high quality.

Kym Bell then spoke to us via VC from Australia about ‘Trade Schools of the Future’. This is an idea which could be useful to WGC, especially for Gateway and perhaps Yr 12 students who have a second study.
