How to use conferencing technologies to spread science far & wide overview (online)





Ben Newsome


In this overview you’ll see how video and web conferencing technologies can be used to link students & the public with your science content. We’ll look at specific examples on how distance lessons have allowed remote audiences to see science differently and re-engage with their communities. The session will include a brief outline of the support networks and online portals in Australia that can help you get started as well as a quick discussion of the findings of my Churchill Fellowship on science education via video conference. A great way to learn how to reach distant audiences from schools to retirement homes not only within Australia but around the globe!
