About the course

With the updated NSW Science Curriculum now incorporating Technology, it is important to learn how to teach coding and technology and how to integrate it into our teaching.

Learn about coding and computer programming with fun, easy-to-use iPad apps that encourage critical thinking skills and make learning fun and relevant for students from K-6. This course introduces coding concepts and pedagagogy 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.

Will also include one session introducing robotics and resources for use in education. Experience robotics in action with Sphero SPRK, Dash and Dot, Lego WeDo 2.0 and more, and imagine the fun and learning it could bring to your classroom!

Scope and sequence and lesson ideas linked to curriculum outcomes provided. Hands-on time to experiment with apps.

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.
