the live underwater images
The Sharks@School live webcast was used as a pilot study to determine any issues that need to be resolved before making it a feature event of future Seaweek activities. Approximately 25 schools and over 1000 students across Australia took part in this exciting and innovative Seaweek trial.
This type of event has great potential to reach a large national audience, giving students from across Australia access to experts who work in the marine field.
Audio and video surprisingly good. I used a data projector to display image on the class whiteboard. Despite this the area of the image was a little small, requiring students to maintain focus on a small space.
The picture was small – maybe the full screen instead of quarters.
