Two Classrooms, One World – From Broadmeadows, Australia to Shanghai, China
Educational opportunities are everywhere! Last week Cisco teamed with the Victorian Department of Early Education and Child Development (DEECD) to provide a connected way of learning that shrunk the 8,000 kilometres between Australia and China and created an engaging and interactive virtual classroom experience over Cisco WebEx.
Education Minister Bronwyn Pike facilitated the real-time and collaborative interaction between Year 9 students from Hume Central Secondary College at the Hume Global Learning Centre’s ideaslab in Broadmeadows, Australia and Year 9 students from Balwyn High School, Glen Waverley Secondary College and the Blackburn English Language School at the Connection 2010 classroom exhibit at the World Expo in Shanghai, China.
