Event description

Description

Presented by Sarah Atkins, ACARA Curriculum Officer, Digital Technologies in focus

You are invited to participate in a 3-hour workshop where we will explore practical, hands-on activities you can incorporate in your teaching and learning programs to develop students' computational thinking skills as part of the Digital Technologies Curriculum implementation.

This workshop will assist participants to:

  • unpack Computational Thinking in the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies
  • develop a deeper understanding of computational thinking
  • understand how classroom activities could incorporate computational thinking strategies
  • consider how the activities in the workshop could be incorporated into a classroom context.

Participants will:

  • unpack the Computational Thinking skills in the Digital Technologies curriculum
  • develop a deeper understanding of computational thinking through scaffolded unplugged and connected online activities including:

- different types of computational thinking skills

- sequencing as the first step in algorithmic thinking

- visual programming languages and simple algorithms in a geometric context

- how choice (branching) works in algorithmic thinking

- how data can be useful to teach concepts across learning areas

- how computational thinking can be used to support literacy and numeracy

  • understand the ways computational thinking could be used in everyday teaching and learning activities (discussion).

Afternoon tea will be provided

Please bring along a charged laptop and or tablet

Suitable for primary and secondary teachers.

We hope you can make it!
