How can we blame educators for not rushing to the frontlines to fight in the Education revolution? They’re already fighting on the front lines! They’re already in the trenches! The mounting pressure driving them out in droves. We’re hemorrhaging teachers and it’s death by a thousand cuts. Education 3.0 is here, but the bigger picture is so much bigger. Implementing 3.0 now would be like putting a plaster (band-aid) on an arterial cut. There’s so much change needed from the g
Virtual learning spaces ready to go and starting next term! Yes! After many months of imagining, building and planning.. its going to happen! From concept model to reality. The #hybridclassroom in practice! I’m very proud, and beyond excited, to work with my base school and see this finally come to life. I started building worlds for educators and working on the hybrid classroom model in lockdown 5 months ago. Just myself and my dog. Now, in 2022 the school’s Years 4, 5 and 6
A while back I was asked ‘How do you think the Metaverse will change education?’. It's a good question. Let me start by saying it won’t be overnight! In many ways, I feel like we slipped right back into form simply because we were all 'Zoomed out'. Online learning often felt like a chore and everyone was sick of it. Did we miss a trick though? If you thought online learning was going to slip away after COVID.. think again. The Global E-Learning Market is estimated to reach $4
Digital Literacy on an Alien Planet Imagine you've been dropped on an Alien Planet... the entire class! Would you be able to describe in detail what you're all seeing? Would you all agree on the same description?
This world is all about collaboration. Work together to send your report home to earth. Use your digital devices to recreate the planet as a 3D file and send it home. The more accurate you are, the quicker you'll be rescued.
Let's face it, that rustling from the gr
For me, this is what it's what the Metaverse is all about! Being able to link two schools together, across 1,000 km of Australia is going to be amazing. The students are going to lose their minds when it's finally opened. The 'Murray Darling River' is the perfect 'world' for a Virtual Field trip. No headsets are required, just a browser and a spirit of adventure. Frame's ability to switch scenes means we can learn by day and eat virtual marshmallows by the campfire in the eve
Hybrid classrooms, blending the real and the virtual in a post-Covid world. During the NSW Covid lockdowns, the schools I coach were closed. Our students entered into a daily routine of zoom calls and isolation. A routine that would continue for over 3 months. Unable to get to schools, I searched for an alternative to bring us together in one space. An online world that allowed students and teachers a chance to reconnect. As well as reconnecting, to have a presence in that sp
