The Forest Classroom is a #Kindergarten to Prep/Foundation bridging curriculum program. After five years of research and development, Berwick Lodge Primary School, in partnership with Deakin University, have created an innovative platform of multi-sensory learning that uses immersive technology and augmented reality (#AR) to engage students with their learning at school and assist with school readiness. πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ«πŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€πŸ«

In the #ForestClassroom program, students will learn about the natural environment, the senses and sustainability. Using hand-held technology (such as #iPads and tablet devices) students will engage with their learning via an AR capable app and book titled Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure – specially and specifically written and produced by the developers of the Forest Classroom program Henry Grossek, Liz Frances Symonds, Manjeet Singh Usma and Rob Kelly. πŸ“šπŸ“—
Β 
Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure has a range of accompanying lesson plans, visual and auditory resources and engaging real-world activities for educators, teachers and parents alike (such as drumming lessons, songs and #mindfulness activities). These resources will soon be available on our Forest Classroom website. Watch this space. πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šβ€β™‚οΈ
