There are two Koorie Links Projects currently operating in Victoria that use technology, specifically video conferencing, to improve educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The Koorie Literacy Links Project concentrates on the early years of schooling (Prep to 4) and the Koorie Middle Years Link Project on Yrs 7-9. There are fourteen school communities involved with each Project. These Projects have now been operating for the past three years. The technology is being used in increasingly innovative and creative ways. This session will outline some of the ways in which the technology is being used. This presentation will also cover proven strategies that impact on student attitude and engagement through the use of video conferencing technology.
