(Virtual) Learning Environments

Virtual Learning Environments are more than just an online storage space. Some of the Advanced Schools have enabled students and staff to have virtual access to the curriculum 24/7, 365 days a year. However, there is a definite implementation strategy required to ensure that the whole school curriculum is current and online. This can become the biggest ‘hidden’ asset as it enables the learning content to become constantly accessible and agile.

In this webinar, it was explored how to build access to virtual learning spaces across the school and how to make the most of the materials beyond the school day. What kinds of virtual learning environments are schools using? How do schools keep the learning spaces vibrant and up to date?
