Evaluation of the new virtual playtime initiative in Foundation-Year 4 has indicated that it’s not just good fun, but it also helps students be better learners.
VSV primary teacher, Liz Cardarelli, said the research highlighted that playtime boosts students’ confidence in the online space and helps students feel more connected to their peers.
She also said that playtime has helped improve student engagement, especially for some reluctant leaners.
‘Each week, students come along with smiles on their faces – beaming with excitement – to spend time with their peers. Some of the favourite activities include playing games, drawing, taking quizzes, showing off our pets and getting up and active by dancing.’
Virtual Playtimes run each Monday at 10.30am for students in Foundation-Year 4.
