Description

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 classes.

Ask-an-Expert

For enrolled classes, students can log in and post their own questions on a Web Board to be answered by the field trip experts. For this special series of field trips from late 2013 until early 2015 Ask-an-Expert will be kept open, apart from school holidays. Once it has finally 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.

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

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