TeachLive is an educational program developed by Earthwatch Australia in 2003. The Bush Blitz TeachLive Project is a collaborative project between the Bush Blitz partners the Australian Government through ABRS, BHP Billiton and Earthwatch, and the Australian Science Teachers Association. TeachLive is an innovative educational program that places teachers on field-based research projects, where they receive a unique professional development experience and get to teach 'live' back to their classrooms via TeachLive websites. Students are able to take a virtual expedition with their teachers helping them to engage in science in an Australian and global context and see their teachers as science role models.
Bush Blitz TeachLive will hold a pilot in May 2013 at the beautiful Henbury Station in the Northern Territory. Application are open now for science teachers from years 5 - 8 and will close on 25 February.
