Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The Prepare Students section will get your class ready for the Geohazards virtual field trip!

The field trip experience is made up of a number of components which take place from Tuesday 9 August to Friday 12 August, 2016.

Ambassadors

Classes can send an ambassador (small toy) on the field trip with the LEARNZ Field Trip teacher. Daily ambassador updates can be read by all enrolled classes.

Ask-an-Expert

Students can post their own questions on a Web Board to be answered by the field trip experts. The web board will be open for one month before the field trip until one month after the field trip. Once it has closed, the Ask-an-Expert link will go to a new page which has a selection of questions and answers from the field trip Web Board.

Audioconferences

Students put questions live to experts who are on location during the field trip. Audioconferences can also be listened to live via Adobe Connect or from a recording.

Diaries

Shelley the LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher writes a detailed diary for students to read, accompanied by 10 captioned images and panoramas for each day of the field trip - including the travel day on Monday.

Experts and Careers

Students meet each expert involved in this field trip via a profile page and short video. Potential career and training paths can also be explored on these pages.

Photo Gallery

All website and field trip photos are available in one easy-to-use location, where students can browse and select to further their interest and learning.

Videos

Short, curriculum-rich videos with questions and answers are made on each day of the field trip and uploaded in the evening for viewing the following day.
