Lit and a bit

Blended Learning in VCE Literature

VCE Literature via the Grampians Virtual School

With one virtual student in each of 2010 and 2011, in 2012 we had 7 virtual students in 3 different schools.

Ideally the virtual students are present for every class via the Polycom unit. However, when this is not possible we have recorded the class using Elluminate, and students are able to access the recording of the class via the web. As the class discussion element of the Literature class is an essential part of the learning, the recording is much more effective than having students simply revising the class notes.


Moodle

We use the GVS Moodle to make resources available 24/7. Links, documents and activities are posted and it is possible to see a log of when students log in and access the resources.
