In 2010-11 we worked with Ministerial company Education Services Australia to help implement the internationally successful home-based virtual learning program for 14-17 year olds most seriously disengaged from formal classroom learning.
2010 video pitch for Notschool project in Australia.
Notschool.net is a last resort for young people disengaged from classroom learning because of:
Illness or phobia
- Bullying or disaffection
- Reluctance to learn
Ministerial company Education Services Australia (ESA) is working with South Australian, Victorian and Tasmanian government schooling systems to implement a two year pilot for 130 learners that commenced in July 2011
Delivery of the pilot requires a significant degree of communication and collaboration across national, state and local jurisdictions, enabled by online networks and a virtual learning environment (VLE).
The pilot will retain fidelity to the international Notschool learning model, with capacity for the program to evolve to best meet the needs of young Australians. A pilot evaluation is sponsored by DEEWR.
