GA - Virtual Learning Environments
A report published today by Ofsted says that Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) have had limited impact within UK schools and colleges, and that the benefits to learners are not yet obvious. Where VLEs were being used well, it usually depended upon the skills and dedication of a particular teacher, whereas the least successful VLEs were simply a 'dumping ground' for rarely used files.
We're interested to know about your experiences. Does your school have a VLE? Do you make use of it for supporting and promoting the work of the Geography department? Does it have a good Geography section? Do you have evidence that it is being well used? Send your opinions to GA Secondary Curriculum Development Leader firstname.lastname@example.org
