Online Learning

I’ve been fortunate enough to spend one day per week working with the Macquarie ICT Innovations Centre (MacICT) -( a partnership between Macquarie University and the NSW Department of Education) team implementing the Local Environment Project. Combining field work, iPhones and LAMS software, students from local high and primary schools conduct student centred biodiversity audits in a local area and make decisions based on data collected. We are presently constructing an online version of this course using LAMS and the potential of this e-learning platform is exciting. The process is collaborative and heavily web 2.0 focused!
