Virtual Learning Experiences in action

Watch how a Te Papa educator runs a Virtual Learning Experience and find out what benefits the classroom teacher sees for her students.

This short video shows some of the main elements of a live-presented Virtual Learning Experience:

  • The experience supports classroom learning. The educator presents taonga and exhibitions that are relevant to student learning.
  • The educator communicates effectively with the audience. He uses a variety of approaches, including: commentary; inviting students to share their thoughts and questions; prompting them to critically reflect.
  • The use of basic digital tools, in this case a smartphone, a gimbal and Zoom.

Visit one of the following links for a look at pre-recorded Virtual Experiences:
