The Forest Classroom is a kindergarten to Prep/Foundation bridging curriculum program. After five years of research and development, Berwick Lodge Primary School in partnership with Deakin University, have created an innovative platform of multi-sensory learning that uses immersive technology and Augmented Reality (AR) to engage students with their learning at school and assist with school readiness.
In the Forest Classroom program, students learn about the natural environment, the senses and sustainability. Using hand-held technology (such as iPads and tablet devices) students will engage with their learning via an AR app and with the book titled Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure - specially and specifically written and produced by the developers of the Forest Classroom program Henry Grossek, Liz Frances Symonds, Manjeet Singh Usma and Rob Kelly.
Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure has a range of accompanying lesson plans, visual and auditory resources and engaging real-world activities for educators, teachers and parents alike (such as drumming lessons, songs and mindfulness activities). These resources will soon be available on our Forest Classroom website.
