What is TeachLive?
TeachLive is an innovative educational tool that places teachers on Earthwatch research projects, where they receive a unique professional development experience and get to teach ‘live’ back to their classrooms via the TeachLive website.
Students are able to take a virtual expedition with their teachers helping them to engage in science in an Australian and global context and see their teachers as science role models.
What will teachers learn?
The interactive nature of the program is an excellent opportunity for teachers to improve their web-based teaching skills, learn current scientific research techniques, work in a team with other teachers and learn more about the unique environments of the world.
