eLEARN

UQ’S LARGEST PARTNER

 Students, nominated staff and parents can access additional project activities at any time with internet access via www.elearn.eq.edu.au .  Involvement in these additional activities is not compulsory, but is highly recommended as they help your students get even more out of the course.  Some schools devote class time to the eLearn activities.  Some schools create a project club before school or at lunchtime and encourage the students to access the internet and complete the activities.  Some schools ask each student to access the activities at home with parent support (if internet access is available).  Schools must provide a Web Conference Supervisor – class teacher, librarian, coach, STLaN, HOC, Principal, Teacher-Aide etc.  The Web Conference Supervisor must be supportive of the program, keen to develop their skills and be capable of managing the behavior of the group.  We request that your Web Conference Supervisor logs in to the session to support the students and online teacher.  Your Web Conference Supervisor will develop their knowledge and skills and is welcome to engage in co-teaching with our online teacher.  This is an excellent opportunity to build staff capability at your school.  You can appoint one person to this role or share the opportunity amongst a small number of staff across the round or the year.  Your school also needs to appoint a Project Coordinator.  Your coordinator organises your school’s participation. The coordinator leads student selection; nominates your preferred lesson times; and provides our team with student and staff details.  Your Project Coordinator and Web Conference Supervisor can be the same person if required.

The centre is a core enabler of our mission “to positively influence society”. In addition, the IMPACT Centre has developed a pedagogical approach that takes training in critical thinking for school students to a new level of rigour. concepts associated with deductive and inductive forms of reasoning at a surprisingly young age and to transfer those skills to tasks across the curriculum.’ Associate Professor Deborah Brown University of Queensland Students learn to explicitly articulate complex
