How it works

​​​​​Remote learning model

Our remote learning model means that your students can participate from any location.

Our specialist online teachers log in to schools across Queensland and the world. They work directly with your students and collaborate with your on-site staff to share best practice and build capability.

Your students and staff log in to a live web conference and work directly with our online teachers.

Subjects—Technologies

Digital Technologies and Design and Technologies subjects run for a full semester. These subjects are available to years 3–6 students in 2022 and include a full teaching, assessment and reporting service.

See individual subject pages for details.

Projects—Critical thinking, STEM, literacy, numeracy

Other student programs develop transferable 21st century skills and run as 'projects' over 12 weeks.

Project format and schedule

  • Students participate in 1 x 60–70 minute web conference per week for a duration of 12 weeks.
  • There are 3 rounds across the year—Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3​.

We negotiate the timetable with you

  • Nominate 2–3 preferences for session times for each group.
  • We can generally accommodate one of these preferences.
  • We then allocate 1 of our specialist teachers to work with your students each week.
  • Our specialist teacher logs in to work directly with your students and staff.

Up to 15 students form an online group

  • Up to 15 students log in together each week as an online group.
  • Your school can register 1 or more groups to participate in a program.
  • Schools with sufficient bandwidth often run 2 groups at the same time i.e. 2 x 15 students = a whole class of 28–30 students. We provide 2 x online teachers in this case.
  • Level 1–4 small schools can enrol individual students or part/half groups – in this case, we coordinate inter-school groups.

Equipment required

  • Each student must work at their own computer (PC or laptop) with reliable internet access.
  • Each student must wear a headset with a microphone to successfully participate. You must purchase this equipment if it is not already available (approximately 60 per unit).

Supervision/coordination required—including PD opportunity

  • We highly recommend that you provide a web conference supervisor​.
  • Your web conference supervisor should support your students to login, then login themselves to collaborate with our specialist teachers and transfer their increasing knowledge and skills to their teaching and leadership practices.
  • Your school also needs to appoint a project coordinator to nominate preferred session times, lead student selection and submit your student registration details.

24/7 activities for reinforcement and extension

  • Students, parents, web conference supervisors and other enrolled staff can access additional learning activities and resources via our learning management system.
  • Involvement in these additional activities is not compulsory but is highly recommended as they help your students reinforce and extend their learning. These activities are completed at school, at home or elsewhere.
