Virtual SportsFest – the first International virtual excursion festival around sport


Virtual Sports Fest is a groundbreaking concept in sport focused school outreach, collaborative learning and inter-agency cooperation. Welcome to our first video conference as part
of the Virtual SportsFest. Hello Sydney The inaugural 2014 festival of virtual excursions
showcased many of the sporting teams, codes, personalities and major sporting events which
call Sydney Olympic Park home. A range of interactive video events were anchored from
the Sydney Olympic Park Authority’s education studio with guests and representatives from
various sports joining in live from fields, courts and venues. Okay boys and girls, we’re here in the Giants
gym today. For teams, sporting organizations and major
event managers these programs opened up a new world of possibilities to engage, enabling
connections directly into classrooms around the country. We are coming to you from Sydney Olympic Park
as part of the Virtual SportsFest. Today we are having a virtual tour of ANZ
stadium. We are about to go live for the Virtual SportsFest. It’s a great opportunity for us to spread
our message far and wide across the nation. Welcome to Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Center.
And today we are doing our first ever connected classroom session live from the tennis courts. For schools, students and teachers, Virtual
SportsFest activities provide innovative ways of covering curriculum based content, motivation
for participation and fresh inspiration for learning. A good example of the engagement
power and reach of interactive video conferencing was demonstrated by activities crafted around
AFC Asian Cup 2015. The biggest football tournament that Australia
has hosted. This is a first of its kind video conference
themed via sport to be a connection for us to talk with one another across our countries. I am really happy to see that all schools
from South Korea and Australia are sharing their culture, language, and learning through
this Virtual Sports Festival. Today you can see we are connecting schools
to talk about the Asian Cup and to tell us what they have learned. We are following the
curriculum that we have developed to educate primary school children about football and
about Asia. We are talking about Asia Cup. Is the way you would train for the Asia Cup? Our school name is Elementary School. The marks are strategically made by skilled
craftsmen. Through a wide range of seasonal Virtual SportsFest
activities, students, teachers and communities anywhere in the world can connect with all
the excitement of Sydney Olympic Park’s major events, teams and partner organizations. Well how good was that? That was brilliant! There you go.
