This LEARNZ virtual field trip begins with Prepare Students which gets your class ready for the field trip.
The field trip experience is made up of a number of components which take place from Tuesday 12 August to Friday 15 August. All components in the table below are updated daily during the field trip. They remain on this website and can be used after the date of the live field trip.
|Classes can send an ambassador (small toy) on the field trip with the LEARNZ Field Trip teacher. Daily ambassador updates can be read by all enrolled classes.|
|Students can post their own questions on a Web Board to be answered by the field trip experts. Ask-an-Expert is available four weeks before and four weeks after the field trip. Once it has closed, the Ask-an-Expert link will go to a new page which has a selection of questions and answers from the field trip Web Board.|
|Students put questions live to experts who are on location during the field trip. Audioconferences can also be listened to live via the Internet audiostream or from a recording.|
|Shelley the LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher writes a detailed diary for students to read, accompanied by 10 captioned images for each day of the field trip - including the travel day on Monday.|
|Wide format images that help students familiarise themselves with the location of the field trip. Captions containing questions generate focus and inquiry.|
|Students meet each expert involved in this field trip via a profile page and short video. Potential career and training paths can also be explored on these pages.|
|All website and field trip photos are available in one easy-to-use location, where students can browse and select to further their interest and learning.|
|Short, curriculum-rich videos with questions and answers are made on each day of the field trip and uploaded in the evening for viewing the following day.|
