Learning safely online!

Five year 8 students, from Hawkesdale P12 College, were part of an exciting initiative offered by Innovations and Next Practice, DEECD. They worked on a number of aspects of online learning and chose to look at the lack of sleep that many student suffer because they are either bullied or up late using social networking sites. Several online sessions were organised for the students from all schools involved, with Dr Martyn Wilde leading them through some of the current research findings.

A celebration day was held in Melbourne at the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) where all students involved shared their projects. The Premier of Victoria, Mr Brumby and the Minister for Education, Bronwyn Pike were both in attendance.

The five girls created a glogster, which shares

  1. the movie that they made
  2. an interview with Heather Blakey
  3. a graphed summary of the survey results etc
