Friday 29th August 2014 was the culmination of my Hale21 online Engineering project. Twenty (20) students from Caversham Primary School, Rosalie Primary School, East Manjimup Primary School, and two students from Holland, have completed a four (4) week journey responding to a wonderful quote by Herbert Hoover, an engineer and President of the USA. They have researched engineers, conducted interviews with lawyers, doctors and soldiers; and collaboratively built constructions to a design brief. They have consulted with teachers and parents; and even had their Principal on the school roof hurling one model to the ground to test their design!
It confirmed how we can work collaboratively online. Microsoft Office 365,Windows Movie-maker, PowerPoint and OneNote made up their platform. 21st Century learning with purpose and audience... now in 2015 using Skype Business we are richly interconnected indeed.
