Project Title Collaborative innovations in Rural and Regional Secondary Schools: Enhancing student learning in Science, Mathematics and ICT
Project Team Professor John Pegg, Dr Debra Panizzon, Mr Neil Smith
Period 2006 – 2007
Funding Agency Australian School Innovation in Science, Technology and Mathematics (ASISTM)
Organisational Base SiMERR National Centre


Data suggest that students in Years 10 and 12 attending regional and rural schools in NSW do not achieve, on average, as highly as their peers in metropolitan areas in mathematics and science subjects. This project responds to this concern by creating networks of teachers in the three subjects within schools and in school clusters in the New England Region of NSW. Teachers are helped to work within their own school groups to address an issue they have identified as impeding student learning. They will be supported in addressing that issue to enhance students’ learning outcomes in their subject.
