        Preparing for the Future Workplace

        Students are more than test scores. To succeed in a complex and changing world, young people must demonstrate knowledge and skills through their performance and their creativity. Educational systems must cultivate students’ creative literacy enabling them to master the communication, critical thinking, complex problem solving and collaboration skills required for future success. This must happen across the whole curriculum to help prepare students for future workplace.

        Provided by industry partner SMART, this session helps Primary teachers learn how to use the Learning Suite Online to prepare blended lesson delivery.

        With Victorian educators leading the way in blended and remote learning, it’s now the perfect time to put in place all of the things we learnt last lockdown & improve our remote learning offerings for our students.

        If we are to move forward with blended learning as the new normal, educators are looking for a more a sustainable and impactful way of delivering remotely and flexibly.

        In this webinar we look at how the SMART Learning Suite Online can be used to solve problems we encountered during our first lock down such as;

        • attendance,
        • task completion,
        • engagement levels of students,
        • turning passive learning into active and collaborative learning
        • & the big ones... delivering deep, rich learning experiences that reflect best practice & the ability to collect authentic student data & work samples.

        Join Bec to see how easy and seamless it is to deliver High Impact Teaching in a remote learning environment and how to integrate it into your existing classroom ecosystem whether you are using Seesaw, Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams or LMS.

        SMART is a DLTV industry partner.

          How is your school coping with remote learning as we move through Term Three 2020?

          This webinar provides three different Victorian perspectives:

          Agenda

          • Lavers Hill K-12 College invested a substantial amount of money to purchase ICT to allow every student to have a laptop. 

            How did the school adapt to the sudden change by preparing staff before lockdown? How did teaching staff get creative in using ICT to do effective online learning programs. What challenges did they deal with, and what was the response from the students' communities?
