Video Conferencing and Learning
Have you taken origami lessons from a Japanese sensei? How about visited Cape Canaveral for the launch of a space shuttle? It might surprise you that there are primary school students who have done these things and more.
Video conferencing is changing the way that students and teachers interact with each other and with their global community.
With the power of video conferencing, the world becomes your classroom. The ways to enrich curriculum and achieve learning outcomes become endless.
Video conferencing opens the door for incorporating technology into the classroom through blended learning. Not only that, but students can collaborate with each other, with their teachers, and with their peers – wherever they are in the world! As an educator or as a parent, it is plain to see that the implications of video conferencing in the classroom means that doors open up for our students. Their learning experience is enhanced, they achieve learning outcomes and they develop the skills to be successful in their studies and in their future endeavours.
Incorporating video conferencing technology to assist with learning:
- Provides options for geographically isolated students;
- Increases collaboration with virtual pen pals, classmates and teachers;
- Enhances curriculum in art, computer technology, drama, health, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies through virtual field trips and video resources;
- Increases the learning and development of students by using individual or group conferencing to discuss topics or work through issues.
There are benefits for administrators and educators as well because video conferencing also can be used for:
- Staff and teacher development;
- Departmental meetings;
- Staff organisational meetings;
- Individualised educational plan development and advice;
- Job candidate interviews.
