Our primary technology framework has a driving vision that students learn to recognise the power that they, as an individual, possess to enact change in the world. Students investigate real-world scenarios where small changes at a local level create big impacts at a global level (Think Global, Act Local).
Learn about a diverse range of technical solutions for engaging the whole school community through a range of web-accessible platforms. Explore immersive and interactive learning experiences, virtual reality coding, WebXR platforms and augmented reality tools for showcasing student-generated solutions through whole-school inquiry frameworks.
This presentation will look at how students can use virtual and augmented reality through online and mobile platforms to transform the physical learning experience, showcase their understanding and retell events as part of an individualised learning journey.
See how to implement VR, AR and XR into a primary classroom environment while promoting student inquiry and providing quality feedback.
With the global focus on authentic synchronous and asynchronous experiences for all members of educational communities there has come a new era of immersive and experiential learning platforms which are accessible to all learners from Pre-Kindergarten through to University and beyond.
Web XR Platforms such as FrameVR.io and Virtual Reality coding applications such as CoSpaces are powerful yet lower barrier entry platforms for learners at any stage of education.
The session will demonstrate the deep use of these technologies through a structured primary years inquiry learning framework.
