Connect and Collaborate: Professional Learning within a Web Collaboration Environment in Remote Western Australia

An increasing number of organisations are required to operate virtually and collaborate across large distances within Australia. Educational organisations have a significant number of schools in regional locations and teachers working in regional and remote areas are often isolated from family members, existing friendship circles and collegial support networks. A convincing body of evidence shows a need for dynamic and sustainable educational learning support networks for teachers, and academic and social support for parents and community members. Connecting communities in regional and remote areas of Western Australia to the city has been largely improved by the implementation of the Telecentre network. The Telecentres provide core services of access to information and communications technology, contracted government services and community development. This paper reports on research undertaken to document the challenges and successes of supporting a dynamic professional learning community through online web collaboration technology within regional and remote areas of Western Australia.
