School of Distance Education on board with FBF Resources

Last week marked an exciting step for FBF, as we ran our first Collaborate Webinar with staff at the Capricornia School of Distance Education (CSDE). Collaborate is the same tool that Education Queensland distance educators use to deliver their lessons to students, and it enabled an engaging PD to be run, overcoming the barrier of distance.

The CSDE staff were very responsive, taking time out of their busy schedule to attend the session and investigate all the free resources that FBF has to offer. They were especially engaged with the ESSI Money financial literacy game! The quote of the session came from Jo Russell, “I’m already addicted…LOVE THE GAME!”.

Thank you to Glen Johnston of Capricornia School of Distance Education for making this session possible, arranging for us to present this PD to CSDE staff.

Our resources are designed for educators to implement independently, and we are eager to engage with schools of distance education and see and how our materials will be applied in these schools.
