what will the museum of the future be like?
Kia ora koutou
I'm on the education team at Te Papa where we've been dipping our toes into long distance learning via video conferencing - we've got a Polycom unit, use the KAREN network and bridge, have our own bridge but can also use ASNET bridge to access schools within Schoolzone.
I've recently been charged with checking out how teachers and students use video conferencing in New Zealand - and if they do at all. If they do - what can we provide that is useful for teachers and useful for students.
I'm interested in what schools and institutions use video conferencing units (Polycoms, Tandbergs etc) vs Adobe Connect vs Skype as part of their long-distance teaching and/or learning
I'm interested in those institutions and schools who are thinking about what direction they might take with regards to long distance learning and teaching
I also want to know what Australian institutions and schools are doing as well as I recently attended the ULearn conference in Christchurch http://www.core-ed.org/ulearn/ and was approached by various people in schools and depts of education who are interested in us becoming content providers.
I'd love to attend other insitutions VC's and build up a bank of best teaching practice via VCs, and share this knowledge and observations.
so - what are you doing? what have you learnt? want to share knowledge and experiences?
I'd love to hear from you
