SLAV Connects is a blog by the School Libraries Association of Victoria (SLAV), formerly named Bright Ideas when a collaboration between SLAV and the State Library of Victoria (SLV). Its aim is to share news from the Association and to encourage teacher librarians, librarians, school library staff, educators and all interested persons to actively engage with the school libraries, to share tools and experiences; to network on a global scale; and to embrace dynamic teaching and learning opportunities.
These are only a few examples of what is available online.
Some of the tours have more content than others; however those with small amounts of content could still be used as a starting point for discussions. An example of this is discussing and researching the architecture of Federation Square.
If for whatever reason, classes are unable to leave the school, Maryna has developed some engaging tasks for students to complete. As Maryna says, “A virtual field trip ‘takes students on a tour of a location using a series of web sites that have been linked together, creating a guided experience.”
Ideal for remote or regional schools, as well as those who find it difficult to get away from school for a whole day.
