CoSpaces Edu is an incredible online platform which allows students to create all sorts of 3D content - animations, Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality experiences, game development, visualisation, and expression -  using a simple drag & drop interface, and block-based coding similar to Scratch.

In this course, you'll:

  • Get up to speed with all its features
  • Learn how to code it with hands-on projects
  • See how it links to Digital Tech in the NZ Curriculum
  • Understand how you can integrate it with your existing curriculum
  • Receive ideas, tips & tricks, and classroom management techniques

Weekly live webinars (Tuesdays, 8am - 30mins) with our experts will keep you motivated and the recordings are available  afterwards for review, or in case you can't attend the webinar. 

New online lessons and activities are released each week to compliment webinar content.

Online discussions in the activities give you opportunity to share and learn from other educators.

Best of all, we send regular email reminders to keep you on track đŸ˜‰
