Basic Skills in the Cybercentre (424)
Levels 1 & 2 of the National Reporting System in reading, writing and numeracy.
This Toolbox is available for purchase.
The Cybercentre Toolbox is designed to provide basic skills to learners with literacy and numeracy needs through the use of simulated ‘real life’ activities.
Basic Skills in the Cybercentre assists learners by offering an innovative program that will help them develop new skills in literacy, numeracy and online learning.
The Toolbox uses a series of scenarios based within a shopping mall, the ‘Cybercentre’, where users can undertake a number of different activities, mainly within shops. These activities require a range of both literacy and numeracy skills, but also introduce the learner to some aspects of the WWW and working online. Each activity is supported by a range of resources that teach the user basic literacy and numeracy skills.
Features of this Toolbox include:
- A Learning Centre where all the literacy and numeracy instructional resources are available. These comprise all the teaching activities that arise from the Cybercentre scenarios. Users can decide whether they wish to access these resources directly through the Training Centre, or whether they enter the Cybercentre and undertake the games and activities in the shops and stores.
- A CyberZone with a number of games where users can practise a range of basic numeracy and literacy skills.
- An Internet Cafe where users are introduced to various aspects of learning online and using the WWW, and where there will be links to other suitable literacy and numeracy sites.
This Toolbox supports a wide range of potential and current VET learners and trainees who have literacy and numeracy needs. The skills cover levels 1 and 2 of the National Reporting System (NRS).
