Skoolaborate is a global initiative uses a blend of technologies including, blogs, online learning, wiki's and ‘virtual worlds’ to transform learning. We aim to use these tools to provide engaging collaborative learning experiences for students aged between 13 and 18 years of age.
We aim to learn how to use these blended experiences to make learning more meaningful and engaging. The projects we create will integrate curriculum and digital technologies into collaborative global actions.
Our virtual learning space is secure and only accessible via invitation. Students from schools around the world are invited to participate. Initiated and manage by Westley Field at MLC School Sydney, Skoolaborate now has over 40 schools and organisations from Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Chile, Portugal, Canada, the UK and the USA.
We will use our initial experiences to gain the skills that allow us to work towards achieving our goal of improving educational outcomes for all students – particularly those who are disadvantaged.
