E-learning Australia tour


CORE is pleased to invite you to join a group of educators on an e-learning tour of Melbourne Schools.

Who is it for?

If you are:

  • Developing your e-Learning vision and strategic plan
  • An innovative leader/teacher/facilitator interested in increasing your e-Learning knowledge and pedagogy
  • Interested in finding out more about the impact of 1-1 devices in a variety of educational settings

...then this is the trip for you!

What will you learn?

  • how digital devices are impacting on and enhancing learning
  • how teachers have changed their practices and the impact of this on student outcomes
  • what pedagogies teachers are using to enhance students learning
  • discussions around what devices and applications/software work best
  • how teachers are using devices with students and how students use them with each other
  • seeing “real” classrooms and engaging with students
  • what works and what doesn’t in an e-learning environment
  • sharing and reviewing experiences through facilitation by CORE staff on tour

How will you learn?

This tour is designed as a learning experience. It is more than just a series of visits and observations. We’ve scheduled time and activities to process what we see to ensure that each participant returns with the information and connections needed to inform the work back in his or her own context.
This will occur through:

  • Pre-tour preparation and briefings online
  • Facilitated reflections at the end of each day
  • A shared, online environment for session summaries, photos, documents, and links
