I am in the middle of completing a glog about different ways that technology can help bring schools and homes closer together. In this post I will comment briefly on the Ultranet. The Ultranet is a Department of Education initiative that is designed to be a complete secure learning management system for victorian schools and homes. Each teacher, student and parent is provided with a unique username and password and can login to the ultranet to find information about learning tasks, assignments, and activities related to the topics covered in class.
I really enjoy the collaborative nature of the Ultranet. Teachers can share activities, lessons and ideas with each other even if the two teachers have never met and are teaching somewhere completely different. The department website has some useful information on the Ultranet
I would love to hear your thoughts about the Ultranet and it’s future in Education in Victoria.
