About the course
With suggestions that coding be introduced into the curriculum, now is the time to start planning!
This is a beginner’s introduction to coding in the classroom for teachers of K-6 school students using easy-to-use iPad apps that develop programming and coding skills with activities that include problem-solving, sequencing, designing, mathematical and computational skills and simple code presented in fun and interactive ways that engage young students.
Lesson plans linked to curriculum outcomes provided. Hands-on time to experiment with apps.
Experience robotics in action with Sphero SPRK and Lego Mindstorms EV3 and imagine the fun and learning it could bring to your classroom!
Learn how to use iPads as an effective teaching and learning tool in the 21st Century classroom with creative tasks, collaboration and higher-order thinking linked to many curriculum areas, but with a strong emphasis on STEM subjects.
Bring an iPad to get the most out of the day in a hands-on environment.
Coding with iPads K-6 - Full Day course will contribute 5 hours of QTC Registered PD addressing 2.6.2 and 3.4.2, from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

What should I bring to the event?
iPad preferably with the most recent IOS update and the suggested apps.
What apps will I need?
You will be sent an email prior to the course with a list of suggested apps that will be used on the day, most of which will be FREE apps.
I attended the 2 hour coding course, will it be the same?
While there will be some double-up in the introduction and some apps, the full day course goes into more detail, includes additional apps and resources and lesson plans. It will be a good opportunity to reinforce knowledge learned and develop more advanced skills. There will also be more time on robotics and the opportunity to use it yourself.
There are no refunds for tickets, but a ticket for a subsequent course will be offered.
