Notschool.net Australia pilot
Notschool.net was an internationally successful home-based virtual learning program for 14-17 year olds most seriously disengaged from formal classroom learning.
Notschool.net was a last resort for young people disengaged from classroom learning because of:
- Illness or phobia
- Bullying or disaffection
- Reluctance to learn
edutech project managed an Australian feasibility and pilot in 2010-11 to implement a two year pilot for 130 learners in SA, Victoria and Tasmania. Delivery of the pilot required a significant degree of communication and collaboration across national, state and local jurisdictions, enabled by online networks and a virtual learning environment. The pilot program retained fidelity to the international Notschool learning model, with capacity for the program to evolve to best meet the needs of young Australians.
