Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a live demonstration of the unique TeachLive technology installed at Murdoch, as presented by Dr Susan Ledger, Associate Dean of Engagement and School Partnerships.

The TeachLive@Murdoch technology offers a mixed reality learning environment, with classroom pupils being represented by avatars that respond in real time to a teacher’s direction or instructions. Actors are wired up behind scenes in the Murdoch TeachLive lab to enable this. This unique blend of virtual reality technology and live human performance creates powerful and immersive learning simulations for both pre-service teachers and practising teachers. The addition of adult avatars as school parents and principals also allows other training scenarios for school leaders to take place within an education setting. All types of instructional techniques can be rehearsed by teachers in TeachLive's virtual reality classroom, and teacher or school leaders can also request customised scenarios in which to improve communications and ‘hard talks’ with students, parents and teachers. The TeachLive technology also enables ‘just-in-time’ feedback and opportunities to reflect on practice which is not afforded in a typical classroom setting.
