#GippslandDigital Overview

Learn Local Tutor Bootcamp and Launch

The 2 day forum on 17th and 18th August, 2017 was designed to inspire and upskill the Learn Local Trainers. Over the next 18 months Think.Digital will upskill the Learn Local Digital Champions through the delivery of a series of digital education opportunities they will be delivering as part of the #GippslandDigital Program.

As part of the BootCamp we took ‘Rocky’ the Think Digital Coach, so that the Learn Local Tutors could climb aboard to experience the mobile classroom (and Virtual Reality Experience) themselves first-hand. Accommodation and Meals were provided for the Tutors.

Think Digital Coach Roadshow

“Rocky” the Think Digital Coach, a purpose built 14 metre mobile classroom will tour the Gippsland Region in October.

The Think Digital Coach will visit 12 Learn Local Centres who will host the Think Digital Coach, and offer practical, hands-on Digital Education, Experiences and Entertainment for the public.

Week 2: Monday 16th to 19th October

Week 3: Monday 23rd to 25th October

At each location, we’ll demonstrate digital technology, run 1.5 hour workshops and prepare those we meet to take part in the 12-month program. The delivery will be a combination of on board and off board digital education and experiences.
