Reflections on Teaching Remote and Isolated Children
In term 3 of last year I had a 10 week contract to teach a class of 14 year 3/4 children at the School of the Air (SOTA) at Port Augusta. This is South Australia's only School of the Air and it is a campus of the Open Access College in Adelaide. I have been a primary teacher for many years but this was the first time that I had taught remote and isolated children using Air lessons and Distance Education lesson materials. Over the years I had myself studied as an external student using Distance Education materials so I had some appreciation of what it feels like to learn this way.
