Life Education has been piloting digital content developed in Prowise Presenter and video conferencing to deliver their outstanding health programs to students.
Using video conferencing technology and Prowise interactive flat panels the team from Life Education was able to engage students from Hillview Primary School in Tamworth and La Perouse Primary School in Sydney. Students of any age love Healthy Harold and he was able to appear in the session to motivate them to be active and to eat well.
This is a new way for Life Education to deliver their programs. The fact that the presenter was able to work with two schools simultaneously and for students in NSW to view their peers and share learning added a deeper significance to the session.
Life Education has developed high quality animations of Healthy Harold which their team had embedded in their Prowise Presenter lessons. This means they can be displayed on any web enabled device so the students have an opportunity to interact with the content in their own classrooms.
In the classroom the students can view the high quality animations, interact with content as well as see Healthy Harold “talking” to them via video conference. ”It’s like watching TV but better because you can talk to your favourite characters.”
This is the second pilot undertaken by Life Education to understand the effect of delivering education programs in this way and the team will evaluate its success. The schools were very positive one teacher saying that the students were focussed for the whole session.
