Expressions of interest open now – Become a trial school during Semester 1 2011.
The online course supports middle-years classes seeking to identify and build environmental awareness about the factors affecting the biodiversity of their local natural environment. Ideally suited to Stage 3, 4 and 5 classes.
Schools can access a LAMS sequence that allows the teacher to confidently plan collaborative student centred learning experiences utilising research, questions, forums, voting, data collection and group decision making processes.
In the field, students engage with locally accessible technologies such as laptops, digital cameras and data loggers to conduct field investigations.
