Clickfest is an exciting initiative from education organisations across Australia. It highlights the diversity and scope of video conferences available to schools across Australia.
Now in its second year, over 20 organisations are delivering free or reduced cost events to schools from Monday 5 – Friday 30 November. Each day multiple sessions will be available on a variety of topics from content providers including:
- Australian Ages of Dinosaurs
- Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum
- Australian Museum
- Fizzics Education
- Literature Live
- Powerhouse Museum
- State Library of NSW
- Taronga Zoo, Sydney
These sessions are being hosted by the Distance and Rural Technologies (DART). DART connections help us by providing a booking system, technical support and marketing to teachers. They make running an event like Clickfest much easier.
Video conferencing provides a great opportunity for schools to participate in special events and programs without leaving the classroom. Distance is no longer an obstacle.
