One of my students in Year 11 Extension 1 Mathematics was scheduled to have an operation on his knee and came up with a brilliant plan to not fall behind. The course goes very quickly and missing any lesson can be difficult – we were going to cover Superannuation using a GP.
He organised with a friend to skype in from home to watch the lesson as we progressed.
For part of the lesson, he was sitting on a table in front of the projector screen (well… the laptop he was skyped into).
For the rest of the lesson, he sat in his usual seat.
I wonder if UStream would have been an easier alternative – although it would not have allowed him to put up his hand and ask any questions.
