Virtual schooling service : productive pedagogies or pedagogical possibilities?
This article reports on an evaluation of a virtual schooling innovation in an Australian context. The Virtual Schooling Service uses online technologies to deliver senior school subjects in both synchronous and asynchronous modes of delivery. The purpose of the study was to analyse the organisational, pedagogical, and technological efficacy of the innovation for the purpose of exploring the feasibility of mainstreaming virtual delivery for secondary schooling. Whilst the Virtual Schooling Service was important in maintaining curricular provision, application of the Productive Pedagogies framework showed that the innovation held pedagogical potential that remained unrealized.
